New York -- Comparison of the 2004 Supplement to the IECC to the Current New York Energy Conservation Code - Residential Buildings

The New York State Department of State requested the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) compare the effects on energy usage as a result of implementation of the 2004 Supplement to the International Energy Conservation Code with the current New York code. The comparison had to determine whether additional costs of compliance with the proposal would be equal to or less than the present value of anticipated energy cost savings over a 10-year period. Under DOE's direction, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory completed the requested assessment of the potential code upgrade.
