Commercial Energy Code Compliance Funding...
DOE Awards $3.7 Million to Spur Investment in Commercial Energy Code Compliance

The U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Office has selected three projects to receive a total of $3.7 million to study the effects of improving the implementation of commercial building energy codes.

The Institute for Market Transformation will perform field studies in Nebraska, Iowa, Florida and Nevada. The Institute will help develop and test a methodology to accurately and cost effectively measure the impact of code compliance on energy performance in commercial buildings. They will also develop training and education curricula based on the data collection findings. These objectives advance DOE's ultimate goal of creating a methodology that allows states and utilities to measure the energy and cost savings of increasing compliance with commercial energy codes. The availability of this information is expected to increase investment in energy code compliance initiatives, which could significantly reduce national energy consumption and emissions.
