Commercial Code Enhancement

Aligning market practices to enhance energy codes

While many advanced design and construction practices have been successfully demonstrated, they have yet to be adopted into mainstream practice in the commercial building industry.

NEEA’s Commercial Code Enhancement program bridges the gap between market practices and state policies by identifying, assessing, and validating the feasibility and affordability of the next-generation technologies and practices.

By queuing up these technologies and practices, building market awareness and capability, and creating market support of new code measures the alliance is paving the way for the Northwest to adopt solution-oriented, market-supported technologies and practices.
