NASEO to Host First Webinar on Major 2018 IECC Code Change Proposals

This first webinar in a five-part series will kick-off with two important proposals related to multifamily buildings and agricultural lighting. Applying the provisions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) to multifamily buildings has long been a source of confusion.

Applying the provisions of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) to multifamily buildings has long been a source of confusion. Depending on the number of stories, the building may have to comply with the residential or commercial provisions, neither of which adequately address multifamily construction. Proposal CE-272 provides a solution to the longstanding confusion by creating a separate chapter in the IECC to address multifamily construction. The second proposal to be discussed is CE-200 which addresses agricultural lighting. In some states, agricultural lighting is one of the fastest growing energy end-uses. Proposal CE-200 will provide clarity around the use of lighting for plant growth and maintenance. Finally, the webinar will conclude with an overview of the IECC development process and upcoming key dates.

This webinar series is being hosted by the Institute for Market Transformation and the National Association of State Energy Officials. If you'd like to receive notices for future webinars, please email: Ryan Meres at IMT:ryan@imt.org; or Todd Sims at NASEO: tsims@naseo.org.
