The Code Adoption Toolkit is intended to encourage and support those interested in energy code adoption. Whether you are just starting out, creating your plan to actively participate, or seeking more information to become an expert, the Toolkit can help.
ICF was commissioned to assess the state- and national-level energy and emissions impacts and economic benefits that could accrue over from the installation of code-compliant insulation in the residential, commercial, and industrial building sectors.
Insulation is a cost-effective, easy-to-install product that can deliver energy savings for the life of the building. With building operations accounting for 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, installing air sealing and insulation is the first, best step toward decarbonizing the U.S. building sector.
The proposed 2024 IECC Commercial model code is estimated to be 8 to 12% more efficient than the 2021 version.
With just three code development cycles to reach 2030, the provisions adopted into the 2024 IECC are more critical than ever.
The White House and the federal agencies can lower residential energy costs by adopting the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code.
Un espacio construido con un código de energía más eficiente aumenta la comodidad y resulta en facturas de energía más bajas para su hogar y negocio.
A space built to more efficient energy code increases comfort and results in lower energy bills for your home and business.
Cherylyn Kelley at the Institute for Market Transformation explains misconceptions around the costs of more efficient building codes.
