Urban Green Council and the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects developed a four-hour course to teach architects and engineers the fundamentals of low energy design. This program focused on the 2010 Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS-2010) and taught processes available to demonstrate compliance. Delivered 80 times throughout New York State, over 1,550 professionals were instructed between September 2011 and March 2013.
The ECCCNYS-2010 requires buildings to be substantially more energy efficient than the 2007 edition. While it regulates the design and construction of buildings for the effective use of energy, it also provides flexibility to allow the use of innovative approaches and techniques.
