“How HERS® Raters Influence the Development of the IECC”

with Eric Makela, New Buildings Institute

How can HERS Raters influence the development of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)? Join us as Eric Makela, Associate Director of the New Buildings Institute takes us on a journey through the world of energy codes.
We learn of the work NBI does and how they’re involved in code development. Eric covers some the states and jurisdictions where more advanced or stretch codes are being implemented. He also illustrates the steps involved in the code update process and what organizations/groups are involved. We will learn how Zero Net Energy and renewables factor in to all the codes. And we cover changes that have been put in place for the 2018 code and what he believes are future themes for next code update in 2021.
Eric is the perfect tour guide, as he has spent the last 30 years training on this topic to practitioners in the building, design and enforcement industries.
