Building Energy Efficiency Standards have been integral to California’s energy efficiency success, weathering massive change over the past 30 to 40 years due to dramatic population increases, shifting load profiles due to building use and technology innovation, and the rise of renewable generation sources. The legacy approach to code development faces new marketplace challenges, as more renewable generation deploys, EV use increases and building professionals demand future-proof codes to keep up with swiftly evolving technology. This session offers a highly interactive roundtable, bringing together attendees and a range of building professional stakeholders to explore the challenges and opportunities in future California energy code development.
- Attendees get a comprehensive review of energy code developments over the past two to three code cycles as well as proposed changes in upcoming cycles.
- Panelists will share perspectives from all aspects of the built environment: from contractors to manufacturers to compliance professionals and end users.
- Participants will share challenges and concerns related to specific code provisions as well as opportunities to advance building design and energy efficiency objectives.
- Attendees will learn about opportunities to participate in policy development so the design and building communities can ensure sound code frameworks and streamlined compliance pathways.
