Energy performance requirements for residential and commercial buildings are now more stringent than ever. In New York City, the 2016 energy code update included substantial changes to improve building enclosure design, testing, and overall efficiency. These requirements represent a major step forward for the city’s carbon reduction goals by driving greater building efficiency, but also place stricter guidelines on the architecture and engineering industry. This presentation will review recent updates in energy code requirements, explore various methods of compliance, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each method, with a focus on building enclosure requirements. We will also review the basics of whole-building energy modeling for energy code compliance and explore the benefits of this increasingly used approach.

After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
•List current energy code requirements for new and existing building enclosures.
•Recognize when to use different energy code compliance paths for building enclosures, and the requirements of each path.
•Understand whole-building energy modeling and when and why it should be used.
•Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of whole-building energy modeling.
