The recently released 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) continues its aggressive path toward lowering commercial energy consumption to ultimately achieving net zero. In addition to adding cool roofs, daylighting, controls, and building power to the building codes and updating HVAC and power regulations, the 2015 IECC release offers additional efficiency package options required to obtain compliance.

Are you up-to-date on the 2015 IECC commercial codes AND is your building compliant?
Join Jared Higgins, PE to review the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) commercial requirements (both mandatory and prescriptive), new efficiency package options, energy compliance methods, and how you can select the best efficiency package and approach to make your buildings compliant.
In this webcast, we'll review the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) commercial updates and what these mean to you. Within this discussion, we'll dissect the 2015 IECC commercial code requirements for each building system (e.g., HVAC, lighting, building power, controls, etc.), differentiate the mandatory vs. prescriptive codes, and outline how you can identify and implement these at your site to meet compliance. Additionally, we'll review the different energy code compliance methods (including the prescriptive method and the total building performance method) and discuss how you can select and apply the best approach for your efficiency and compliance plans. We'll discuss the added 2015 building efficiency package options necessary to meet compliance, and explore how you can identify the best efficiency package options for your buildings. Finally, we'll take a look at the evolution of the IECC from the first HVAC regulations to its current state, and we'll jump forward to our code predictions for future releases of the IECC commercial code.
At the end of this webinar, you'll walk away with an understanding of the opportunities and applications for UAVs for variety of environmental, infrastructure, agriculture, and construction sites, as well as an action plan to get UAVs flying at your site.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
- Identify the minimum requirements for building energy systems contained in the energy conservation code.
- Understand the different methods of energy code compliance concerning the prescriptive method and the total building performance method.
- Determine the best approach for the additional efficiency package options.
- Understand why the energy conservation code is changing so rapidly and what to expect in future releases of the code.
* Presentations are scheduled for approximately one hour with a 15-20 minute question and answer session to follow. Presentation may exceed scheduled time.
* Each state and certification agency has different requirements; it is your responsibility to know what they are. Note that 1 PDH = 0.1 CEU.
