Reaching Net Zero Carbon through Building Energy Codes

While the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) is already being used by some states, wider adoption is anticipated with the initiation of DOE’s Resilient and Efficient Codes Implementation (RECI) program. This session highlights key changes in the IECC and identifies 2024 proposals that will have the biggest impact on reaching emission goals. The presenters will explore the relationship between required codes and voluntary standards, as well as the adoption status of Model Code and Stretch Code in Massachusetts, New York State and New York City.
