Guest speaker:

The 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) will contain an optional appendix for “Zero Energy” performance. AIA MA has also submitted a code proposal to the State Board of Building Regulations and Standards (BBRS), consisting of an edited version of the IECC appendix, which could become the basis for the next “Stretch” Energy Code in Massachusetts. This presentation will introduce attendees to both proposals, with explanations of their intent, provisions and differences.
