Global climate change, with a time frame of decades not years, encourages policy makers to pay more attention to new construction in addition to the retrofitting of existing buildings and to upgrading the efficiency of fast-turnover appliances and lighting. Increased interest in advanced building energy codes is reflected in proposed federal legislation to set multiyear energy code targets leading to zero-energy buildings. The expectation of continuous, staged improvements in building codes… CONTINUE READING
