Success Story: California Dreams: Title 24 Energy Code On Target For Net Zero Energy Standards Goal By 2020

In May 2012, California approved its next building energy code update, the 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (BEES, also referred to as Title 24, Part 6), setting the stage to once again claim one of the most efficient energy codes in the nation. The update’s timing is considered crucial given California’s population growth projections and the significant additions to its building stock expected to follow. The Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) is proud to have been a part of adoption support process and to have been effective through direct outreach to organizations as well as through direct coordination with the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the Nation Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
