Sign Up For Energy Code Performance Pilot Study

NYC Design Professionals - There is still time to submit your application to take part in our new Energy Code Pilot Study.

Design professionals who participate in the study will be able to contribute to the development of a new performance-based Energy Code for New York City, by testing new compliance tools developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) for their building design plans. These newly developed performance based compliance tools, which are being tested to replace the prescriptive approach, will allow building owners to better understand how their entire building, and building systems, are performing in terms of energy efficiency.

The study will help determine whether these energy-efficiency analysis tools can simplify the energy-modeling process, and be used as a feasible compliance option for more projects going forward. We need your input in this Pilot Program as we work to develop a new performance-based Energy Code, which will be a critical step towards more efficiently designed buildings and a more sustainable city.

The deadline to submit an application to participate in the pilot study is Tuesday, August 31, 2021.
