Energy Codes and Zero Energy Buildings: Strategies for Today, Tomorrow, and Beyond

New building energy codes have arrived and others are on the horizon. This intensive session begins by introducing the newest codes in the region: specifically the amended IECC2015/ASHRAE 90.1-2013 and updated stretch code in Massachusetts as well as the stretch code and zero energy plan under development in Rhode Island and New York. Looking forward, the IECC2018 and the ASHRAE 90.1-2016 standards have been finalized, and we provide a synopsis of what changes are coming. Finally, we delve into what a zero energy code might look like and discuss when it may be coming to the region.
