Getting Started > Energy Codes Universe

Energy efficiency is in! But as demand for more stringent energy codes grows, so does the complexity of the codes process and the need for a broad coalition of stakeholders. For anyone new to codes, simply identifying the many actors involved can be a daunting task, much less finding opportunities for involvement. Even veteran code experts must stay up-to-date with the changing landscape. To help make sense of it all, BCAP has created the Energy Codes Universe!
