For many building professionals, understanding the energy code can feel overly complicated. Luckily, Urban Green is here to help! Crushing the Code NYS: Energy Code 101 prepares building and design professionals in New York State to navigate the requirements of the 2020 Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS).
In this introductory session, students will learn what the energy code is, why it was developed, where it’s headed, and the different ways to comply. This course will cover topics related to both the Commercial and Residential energy code for New York State.
