Workshop Summary

On November 5 and 6, 2014, regional and national energy efficiency professionals gathered in Denver, Colorado to discuss the world of energy codes and how they impact and advance energy savings in the Southwest.  This was SWEEP’s first biennial codes conference for the Southwest region of the U.S. Participants from five of the six Southwest states were in attendance as were experts in energy codes as far as Portland, OR and Washington, DC.  Participants learned about the newest energy code, the 2015 IECC and ASHRAE 90.1-2013, and opportunities to improve code adoption and code compliance. 

This new conference serves the Southwest states by focusing on the challenges and opportunities present in this diverse climate region of the county.  The 1.5 day event provided a rounded mix of energy code topics for state energy office staff, utilities, design professionals, energy code trainers, HERS Providers, and more.  The 2014 conference featured 24 dynamic and concise presentations on energy codes.  The workshop was sponsored by the American Chemistry Council and the North American Insulation Manufactures Association with additional funding from SWEEP program funders of the energy codes program.
