Energy Codes Compliance

Tools to Boost Employment Reduce Pollution and Increase Energy Independence
Energy Codes are an affordable and effective mechanism for increasing the long-term efficiency of buildings. The concept entails a minimum level of cost-effective and energy-efficient technologies to reduce utility bills for consumers and businesses.
Definitions building energy codes are managed at the state and local levels and are defined as the minimum energy efficiency requirements for new or renovated buildings. Standards cover building envelope - walls, roofs, windows, lighting, water heating, and space conditioning. They are intended to ensure sound design and construction practices.

Benefits building operations consume 38 percent of total U.S. energy spending. Code applications lead to energy independence and reduced emissions of harmful pollutants. 
Every Dollar Spent Yields $6 in Energy Savings
Compliance most jurisdictions lack the necessary training and enforcement resources to ensure compliance. Full compliance with energy codes would produce significant annual and cumulative energy savings. The average American household spends $2,150 each year on home energy bills. Meeting the energy standards in building codes typically cut costs by 15 percent or more.

Tasks high levels of code compliance can be achieved by:
o   maintaining existing budgets for building departments
o   supporting strict and uniform enforcement of building energy codes
o   applying training tools in building departments and by design professionals
o   communicating the value of codes and standards to the public and to local utilities.
