Free Webinar To Discuss Changes To 2012 Energy Code
February 18, 2011

A U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) free webinar on February 22nd will discuss major changes to the International Code Council’s (ICC) 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) compared to the 2009 edition. The webinar will include an overview of the role that DOE’s residential Building Energy Codes Program played in the development of the 2012 IECC and a forecast on the future of energy codes.

The webinar is aimed at building and energy code officials, residential builders, architects, building engineers and contractors. Comprehensive training on the 2012 IECC changes will be available from the Code Council in May.

The 2012 IECC is expected to improve the energy efficiency of newly built commercial and residential buildings by 30 percent more than those built under the 2006 IECC. Key changes for residential buildings up to three stories in height include measures to improve the thermal envelope, HVAC systems and electrical systems. Required energy savings for windows, doors and skylights; thermal envelope efficiency; and increased efficiencies for installed HVAC equipment are among the major changes for non-residential construction.
