DOE Providing $7 Million for Updated Building Codes

 
DOE Providing $7 Million for Updated Building Codes

The DOE has announced that 24 states will receive $7 million to support energy-efficient building codes. The funds will help states comply with updated residential and commercial building codes as part of a larger endeavor to significantly cut the energy intensity of the U.S. buildings sector, which currently accounts for more than 40% of the nation’s energy consumption.

Recovery Act commercial building goals include specifications presented by the ANSI, ASHRAE, IESNA, and the IECC.  These codes cover a myriad of energy-efficiency issues including HVAC systems, water heating, power, and lighting.

The Building Energy Code program has generated approximately $16 billion in savings since it began 20 years ago.

The states selected for funding will be eligible for up to $350,000 in technical assistance, including code training and adoption outreach to policy makers.
