Unpacking the 2024 IECC Residential Public Comment Draft
The residential section of the 2024 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) has been released for public comment. Watch NBI and NRDC experts in this on-demand webinar that summarizes the major changes proposed, the process for submitting public comment, and ways that stakeholders can influence this critical code cycle for addressing climate change. After presentations on the draft code proposals, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss. This course is registered with AIA as a continuing education course for architects.
The 2024 Residential IECC draft was developed over months of Committee and Subcommittee hearings and a balloting process that required a two-thirds approval vote ahead of the public release. Governments, businesses, NGOs, and individuals will have until December 5, 2022 to provide comment on the code language that jurisdictions will depend on for the next four years to make good on their climate commitments.
