Codes

Increasing progressive effectiveness of energy codes

The NEEA Codes and Standards program supports regional stakeholders in the development and adoption, training and implementation of energy codes.  States engage in the code development process along different cycles and code versions, but all states now use the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) as a baseline for their commercial energy codes. All states except Oregon now use the IECC as the basis of their residential code.  The adoption of codes is the responsibility of state code boards or agencies.
