Florida Certification of Residential Building Energy Codes - 2018 IECC
Document Type: State-specific, State Certification | Publication Date:
Energy and Energy Cost Savings Analysis of the 2018 IECC for Commercial Buildings
Document Number: PNNL-28125 | Document Type: Analysis | Publication Date:

This report provides an assessment as to whether new buildings constructed to the commercial energy efficiency provisions of the 2018 IECC would save energy and energy costs as compared to the 2015 IECC. The Commercial Energy Efficiency chapter in the 2018 IECC allows users to either follow the provisions in the IECC or use Standard 90.1-2016 as an alternative compliance path. PNNL also compared the energy performance of the 2018 IECC with the corresponding Standard 90.1-2016 to help states and local jurisdictions make informed decisions regarding model code adoption.

Residential Prototype Building Models 2018 IECC - Climate Zone 1A
Document Type: Model Data | Publication Date:

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.
