Updating of the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) is underway! Join a free webinar hosted by New Buildings Institute and the Energy Efficiency Codes Council to hear from experts working on the 2021 IECC update. Attendees will learn about the efficiency proposals that would improve design and construction approaches and deliver 10-15% better efficiency. The 2021 version of IECC will have decades-long impacts on the energy performance of buildings and presents the best near-term opportunity to dramatically reduce energy use and carbon emissions from new residential and commercial construction projects. The built environment accounts for roughly 70% of the electricity and 40% of the carbon emissions in the U.S. Better energy codes also means more comfortable and heathier living, working and learning spaces, increased property values, and lower operating costs.

Proposals submitted to the IECC will come up for a vote by members of the International Code Council (ICC) in fall of 2019. Although this process is almost a year long, local governments have only until March 29, 2019, to join the ICC or renew membership, a requirement for voting to move this national model energy code forward. This webinar will also review the process for how the 2021 IECC is developed and what jurisdictions and others can do to make their voices heard.
