The International Code Council has published a new resource on building performance standards and energy codes, Energy Codes and Building Performance Standards: Supporting Energy Use and Emissions Reductions in Buildings. The resource provides code officials and building departments with background on BPS and broad recommendations on greater coordination between policies for new and existing buildings. It also highlights the benefits of BPS and nuances of policies that are enacted by state and local governments, as well as the federal government.  

Energy experts, including designers, engineers, trade associations, research organizations and government officials participated in the development with the Code Council to produce the content.  

“The Code Council recognizes the growing interest in building performance standards to support the achievement of energy and GHG emissions reduction goals targeting jurisdictions’ existing building stock. As the largest international organization of building safety professionals, the Code Council is uniquely qualified to provide both insight and recommendations that can assist building and construction stakeholders in navigating the current building regulatory landscape,” says Ryan Colker, Code Council VP of Innovation.
