Pennsylvania’s Uniform Construction Code (UCC) has been in place since 2004, helping to keep Pennsylvania citizens safe, healthy, and comfortable, all while reducing their energy bills. Recently, Pennsylvania took a great leap forward in the efficiency of new construction by adopting the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), under which new homes are expected to use about 25 percent less energy and new commercial buildings more than 15 percent less energy. Energy codes are helping Pennsylvania achieve its goal of an 80 percent carbon emissions reduction by 2050, and improve community resilience, but much of the presumed energy savings depend on local municipalities. Attend this webinar for a brief overview of the history and potential future trajectory of the energy code and how your city, borough, or township can support this important policy. Learn about how local building departments work to improve community resilience, the challenges they face, and how you can support their efforts to ensure safe, healthy, comfortable, efficient, and resilient construction. Also learn about how the energy code can impact existing buildings undergoing renovations.
