New Mexico -- Energy Savings and Economic Analysis of Updating New Mexico’s Commercial Building Energy Code

This paper presents an assessment of the energy savings and economic impact for New Mexico to adopt the 2000 International Energy Conservation Code. As of the writing of this report, the state of New Mexico bases its commercial building energy code on the 1986 Model Energy Code, which in turn references ASHRAE Standard 90a-1980 for the commercial building portion of the energy code.
