Building Codes Implementation for Efficiency and Resilience - American Cities Climate Challenge

Building Codes Implementation for Efficiency and Resilience

Federal Agency

Sub-Department

Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)

Purpose

To enable sustained, cost-effective implementation of updated building energy codes to save customers money on their energy bills.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible Uses: (A) To create or enable State or regional partnerships to provide training and material; (B) to collect and disseminate quantitative data on construction and codes implementation; (C) to develop and implement a plan for highly effective codes implementation, including measuring compliance; (D) to address various implementation needs in rural, suburban, and urban areas; and (E) to implement updates in energy codes.

Decarbonization Considerations

Municipalities can implement stricter energy codes to reduce emissions from buildings, one of the single largest contributing sectors to climate change. Codes can regulate electric/gas systems, appliances, etc.

Equity Considerations

Energy codes can reduce the amount of gas burned in the home, a health hazard that disproportionately affects underserved groups. Codes can also address update baseline standards that particular impact structures in underserved communities.
