NOI Dept. of Energy - BIL Building Energy Codes Resilient and Efficient Codes Implementation.
Notice of Intent: BIL Building Energy Codes Resilient and Efficient Codes Implementation
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) intends to issue, on behalf of the Building Technologies Office (BTO), a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Building Energy Codes: Resilient and Efficient Codes Implementation (RECI)”. EERE intends to issue this FOA in accordance with Section 40511 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (BIL), also commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), which directs the Secretary of Energy to establish a competitive program enabling sustained cost-effective implementation of updated building energy codes. This FOA will be focused on efforts relating to the implementation of more efficient building energy codes, as well encouraging more resilient buildings, including grid-flexibility and stability, storage, durability, and better protection against extreme weather events.
Building energy codes establish minimum levels of energy efficiency for certain residential and commercial buildings. Model energy codes, such as the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1 are developed and updated through national consensus processes. States and local governments ultimately implement energy codes, which is handled through various adoption, compliance, and enforcement processes and can vary widely across the United States. The implementation of building energy codes also depends on a significant number of stakeholders, including state and local government agencies, building and safety departments, builders, contractors, and design professionals, as well as a number of affected community interests. Successful implementation of the latest building codes and standards is critical to ensuring their benefits are realized in American homes and businesses.
