The Texas Energy Code Compliance Collaborative (TECCC) was established in an effort to find ways for the state to access and improve compliance with energy codes, offer support to local jurisdictions, and engage stakeholders in energy code discussions. The stakeholder group was established in 2011 and since 2014 SPEER has been leading the quarterly meetings. With the publication of the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code in the fall of 2020, Texas A&M Energy System Lab (ESL) and our State Energy Conversation Office (SECO) were put on the clock for stringency analysis and recommendation for adoption. We invite you to join us for this thought-provoking and informative panel discussion!


April 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm Central
