Jeff Tiller and Chuck Perry
Implementing Energy Conservation Policy via the North Carolina State Building Code
This talk will focus on the ongoing efforts to shape energy conservation guidelines for residential and commercial buildings that are part of the North Carolina Building Code. The NC Building Code undergoes review and revision on a six-year cycle, and provisions addressing “green” strategies to reduce energy use in buildings are negotiated by multiple stakeholders before they are adopted. Learn about the complex process to advance energy codes and the latest proposals for the 2018 North Carolina Energy Code from Jeff Tiller and Chuck Perry who serve on the Energy Conservation Code Ad-Hoc Committee of the North Carolina Building Code Council.
*Attendance will be kept for faculty offering extra credit for students.*
