Increasing compliance with California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards is a sure way to jump forward in your local government’s energy efficiency goals. So what’s standing in the way?
Reports show that many reviewers are often short staffed and pressed for time, and have important competing priorities like reviewing for fire/safety and health. Many local governments are also often stretched thin with resources, and Buildings Departments and contractors may not have the resources or up-to-date information on new energy efficiency code developments. Learn more about the challenges, and best practices for overcoming these challenges (including education, training, and support in streamlining review) in this presentation by Alameda County’s StopWaste to support planning for the 2015 Integrated Energy Policy Report (IEPR).
