ENERGY CODE ADVOCACY FOR CLIMATE ACTION


Shift Zero Webinar: Energy Code Advocacy 101

  • Monday, June 24, 10-11am
  • RSVP to rachel@shiftzero.org
  • Hosted by the Shift Zero Roadmap to ZNE Task Force
Learn how and why to advocate for innovative, sustainable energy codes in the 2018 Washington State Energy Code cycle. The current proposed changes to the commercial and residential energy code will be a critical step to achieving zero carbon homes by 2030, and now is the last chance to make changes until 2023.

The State Building Code Council needs to hear from builders, engineers, architects, and environmental advocates in support of progressive codes. Public comment is encouraged in person, or by calling in, at upcoming meetings, as well as through written comment:
  • July 12 (Olympia: Commercial Energy Code)
  • September 13 (Spokane: Residential Energy Code)
  • September 27 (Olympia: Residential Energy Code)
Learn more during this webinar; a future webinar will also be scheduled later in the summer. Please email rachel@shiftzero.org for registration information.
 
Webinar: Gaining Momentum on Efficiency: Next Steps in the 2021 IECC Update Learn about the status of residential and commercial energy efficiency proposals for the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). This 90-minute session will feature experts explaining the outcomes from the recent International Code Council Committee hearings in Albuquerque, and lay out the best opportunities for achieving substantial energy savings in this important model energy code.

The 2021 version of IECC will have decades-long impacts on the energy performance of buildings and presents the best near-term opportunity to dramatically reduce energy use and carbon emissions from new residential and commercial construction projects. Learn about this important process that culminates in a November vote and how you can help make a difference in the 2021 IECC.
