Energy Code Roadmap for Getting to Zero Outcomes

Paper / February 20, 2020 / Codes And Policy, Zero Net Energy

Advanced energy codes are an important policy mechanism to advance energy efficiency and integrate renewables into the built environment. Energy code roadmaps lay the groundwork by identifying the order and priorities necessary for subsequent code improvements on the path to zero energy and zero carbon emissions. This roadmap document highlights code and policies mechanisms that can be leveraged by cities and states interested in pursuing outcome-based building policies.
