Energy Code Evolution -- An Overview for Architects

Building energy codes can be daunting in their size and complexity, with model codes continually evolving to capture design improvements, greater efficiency, and affordability, while multiple editions can lead to a patchwork of adopted codes across the country. This webinar which is part of DOE's Building Energy Codes Program Energy Codes Commentator webinar-based training series, outlined the structure and effective use of these codes for architects, highlighting new and significant provisions that impact architectural design and cost. Specific topics included air tightness, glazing area, alterations, and the use of renewables, as well as possible trends for future codes.
