In this analysis, PNNL evaluated the cost-effectiveness of the changes in the prescriptive and mandatory residential provisions of the 2018 edition of the IECC compared to those in the prior edition, the 2015 IECC.

Technical analysis in support of the 2018 IECC Determination.

The International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) prototype building models (prototype models) were developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), in support of DOE's Building Energy Codes Program (BECP), to simulate energy savings associated with changes in energy codes and standards. For residential buildings, PNNL utilized two base prototypes to simulate both Single-family detached house, and Multi-family low-rise apartment building types. Energy models for the recent versions of the IECC are available for each climate.

The commercial IECC prototype building models were developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in support of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Building Energy Codes Program. These prototype buildings were derived from DOE's Commercial Reference Building Models. The prototype models include 16 building types in 19 climate locations for for recent editions of the IECC. Also included is a scorecard for each prototype building. The scorecard is a spreadsheet that summarizes the building descriptions, thermal zone internal loads, schedules and other key modeling input information.

The most recent edition, the 2018 IECC, was published in August 2017, triggering the DOE review and determination process. In response, DOE and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) conducted a technical analysis to determine energy savings for the 2018 IECC residential provisions relative to the previous edition—the 2015 IECC. This report documents the methodology used to conduct the analysis and summarizes the results and findings.
