Energy Code Triggers for Existing Buildings

As states advance their commitments to building decarbonization and electrification, it is important to reevaluate our perception of existing buildings and their corresponding energy consumption. Building energy codes can be used as regulatory instruments that define the minimum standards and prerequisites for achieving energy efficiency in new building design, construction, and operation. This, in turn, can lead to reduced energy consumption, resulting in lower operational costs for building occupants and owners.1 Beyond financial benefits, the overarching goal of energy codes is to enhance indoor health and safety, prioritizing the well-being of individuals and communities.
