→ Preliminary analysis available regarding energy efficiency improvements: energy standards for buildings (exception: low-rise residential)

Comments Close:

 The most recent edition of building energy conservation standards were published in October 2016. When building energy conservation standards are established, the Secretary of Energy must make a determination whether the revised code would improve energy efficiency in commercial buildings. The Department of Energy has therefore conducted a preliminary analysis to quantify the expected energy savings associated with these new standards relative to the previous version (2013). The Department of Energy will accept any comments, data, and information regarding the scope of the Preliminary Analysis.
