SPEER Presents Workshop on the New 2021 Energy Code

SPEER Presents Workshop on the New 2021 Energy Code
  • Save

If you are a builder, code official, architect, or HVAC contractor, the April 29, 2021 Workshop on the new 2021 energy code is an event you don’t want to miss. This workshop will explore the changes to the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and what is required for compliance by building industry professionals.

Energy codes set the minimum energy efficiency standards for new and remodeled structures. They are designed to reduce energy consumption and provide safe, comfortable, and healthy buildings for their occupants.

Energy codes also help consumers with the cost of owning a home by providing cost savings in utilities and by promoting the use of the construction industry’s latest technology and building practices.

Since there is no national building code, the IECC is the most widely adopted energy model by states and local jurisdictions in the U.S. The IECC is the most effective way to improve buildings, as well as to protect consumers and the economic future of the community.

Jason Vandever, Energy Code Program Manager for South-Central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource (SPEER), will be presenting the Energy Code Workshop on April 29, 2021.  SPEER is a non-profit regional energy efficiency organization with a mission of promoting and developing the understanding and adoption of advanced building systems and energy efficient products and services in Texas and Oklahoma. An integral part of that mission is helping building industry professionals to facilitate the adoption and enforcement of the energy code.

The Energy Workshop will consist of a morning session from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and will include a presentation of some of the code changes that are coming as well as an overview of some key areas that impact energy efficiency: HVAC sizing and installation, weather resistive barriers, window installation, construction resources, and other elements of a home’s envelope. The morning session will be followed by a training session conducted onsite at a home under construction for an “up close and personal” look at how homes should be built to be code compliant.

Please note that although the workshop and training are free, you will need to pre-register online if you plan to attend. The attendance is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, and you will need to submit to a temperature check at the door as well as wear a mask during the event.

The event is being sponsored by the following: SPEER; BUILT TO SAVE®; Magic Valley Electric Cooperative; AEP Texas; Texas Gas Service/Energy Efficiency Rebate Program; Rio Grande Valley Builders Association; and Radisson Hotel McAllen Airport. Thanks to these generous sponsors, attendees will enjoy breakfast tacos and an opportunity to win door prizes and gift cards.
