The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Technical Assistance Program will host a webinar on September 27, 2012 covering the topic of Building Codes: Baselines and Beyond.
Energy codes serve as a baseline of building efficiency that drive beyond-code programs to improve. Increased compliance rates and proper enforcement unlock opportunities for deeper energy savings, reduced costs, and higher building resale values, as well as opportunities to minimize the environmental impact of the buildings. This webinar will demonstrate how communities are pushing baselines forward and describe technical resources available through DOE and other stakeholders.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 27, 2012, from 11-12 p.m. Eastern. Please register in advance using the webinar registration form.
Speakers include Maureen Guttman, executive director of the Building Code Assistance Project; and Zaida Basora, assistant director of the Dallas Public Works Department.
