Stretch Energy Codes: Helping Practitioners Reach the Moon

The national model codes will not achieve the energy savings necessary for New York State, New York City and other leading jurisdictions to reach their carbon reduction goals. Over the past 2 years NYSERDA, with the assistance of NYC and other stakeholders, has been working to create the NYStretch-Energy Code 2018 - a voluntary, locally adoptable stretch energy code - to reduce the environmental impact of energy use in buildings across the state. Come join our discussion about this multi-year effort. We’ll examine the basis for the NYStretch-Energy Code 2018, how NYC seeks to meet the city’s carbon reduction goals, how Ithaca, NY intends to use the stretch code to reach its zero carbon new construction goals, and we’ll share tools and training that will be available for compliance and enforcement.
