Washington State Energy Code Roadmap

Report / September 11, 2015 / Codes And Policy

The purpose of this roadmap is to provide context for the policy and code performance goals for new buildings in Washington law and identify the mechanisms and cycles by which code provisions can evolve to meet these goals. These code improvements will occur in incremental steps and this document will help identify the order and priority that is needed to lay the groundwork for subsequent code and policy strategies to improve code language.  The Roadmap also identifies scope and policy barriers as well as opportunities that will need to be addressed to achieve the long-term goals identified.


This factsheet highlights the issues, priorities, and sequences that will lead to success in meeting legislated targets for the Washington energy code.
