Cracking the Energy Code

The 2010 Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS-2010), effective December 28, 2010, is now mandatory throughout New York State. The code regulates the design and construction of buildings for the effective use of energy while providing flexibility to allow the use of innovative approaches and techniques. It includes additional mandatory provisions and requires buildings to be substantially more energy efficient than the 2007 edition.

Urban Green Council and the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects have developed a four-hour course to familiarize architects and engineers with the ECCCNYS-2010, the fundamentals of low energy design, and the processes available to demonstrate compliance. This program is funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

The course will address commercial buildings, including residential buildings over three stories. It will also address the New York City Energy Conservation Code (NYCECC), which incorporates ECCCNYS but is more stringent than the State code. ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1 2007, an alternative compliance pathway for meeting the requirements of ECCCNYS - 2010, will be referenced, but not covered in detail. Eighty training sessions are being presented at various venues throughout New York State between September 2011 and July 2012. Sessions are being scheduled on an ongoing basis.

All New York City Courses are held at The Center for Architecture unless noted otherwise
