DOE Seeks Input on Funding for Cost-effective Implementation of Updated Building Energy Codes
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO) has issued a (RFI) to gather responses from the public that will inform the program development and execution of Section 40511 of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This provision makes $225 million available over the next five years to state agencies and partnerships to help drive the cost-effective implementation of building energy codes for improved efficiency and resilience.
“Slashing building emissions is an absolute ‘must-do’ on the path to beating the climate crisis” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “We’re seeking feedback from the American public on how to optimize every step of the building code adoption process, from education to implementation, to lower energy bills and create cleaner and healthier communities for every American.”
