Energy/Carbon Savings & Efficiency Requirements Matrix by Climate Zone

NBI has analyzed energy and carbon savings for codes based on the proposed 2012 IECC for three building types in 14 climate zones across the country. Click on a climate zone in the map below for applicable energy savings and carbon reductions.

NBI’s code research work also compiled a matrix of climate-specific key measures in model and advanced codes that correspond with each of the 14 U.S. climate zone. These can be found by clicking on the climate zone below.
