International Energy Code Development
The International Code Council announced this week that code change proposals were being accepted for the development of the 2024 edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The development process for this highly important code was recently changed to a consensus standards process that allows a more balanced influence on the outcome. Proposals to the IECC will be accepted through October 12.

The IECC is the most widely adopted energy conservation code in the U.S. and it also references key standards such as ASHRAE 90.1 for commercial construction and ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301 for residential construction. There has been much attention paid to the IECC in recent years due to the efforts of various interest groups to influence the requirements in their favor.

Several past proposals have focused on “electrification” of buildings to the detriment of fuels like propane in efforts to “de-carbonize” the built environment. However, the most recent editions of the IECC do have a “source energy” pathway that accounts for the true energy use and carbon generation in bringing electrical energy to a building. NPGA is focused on ensuring that codes utilize source energy as the basis by which energy conservation is measured.
