Potential Job Creation as a Result of Adopting New Residential Building Energy Codes

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program (BECP) asked Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to research and ascertain whether jobs would be created in individual states based on their adoption of model building energy codes. The overall analysis found that transforming the U.S. housing stock through the adoption of more energy-efficient building energy codes could create hundreds of jobs in each of several states.

The following reports discuss the analysis and results for four representative states.
