Should We Stop Trying to Update to the Latest Model Building Energy Code?

States across the Northeast expend significant time and effort in the pursuit of adopting the latest model energy codes from the IECC and ASHRAE. With the 2009 and 2012 model energy codes this resulted in significant improvements in the minimum building standards, but more recently national model codes have produced fewer savings at a time when the need for dramatic energy performance improvements has never been greater. Speakers will present leading city and state efforts achieve Energy Positive and Passive House performance and what this means for our engagement with the national model codes, and engage in an active discussion of our future baseline codes.
