This is a presentation for U.S. Department of Energy 2017 National energy codes conference July 18—20, 2017 Pittsburgh, PA. USA.
The slides presented a case study about the impact of carbon policy changes in NYC on the existing buildings and energy code in NYC.
As a result, several other existing building codes and policies in NYC has to be amended accordingly:
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program (BECP) periodically evaluates national and state-level impacts associated with energy codes in residential and commercial buildings. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), funded by DOE, conducted an assessment of the prospective impacts of national model building energy codes from 2010 through 2040.
