The Nebraska Energy Office held a statewide check of the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code that has energy officials pleased with code compliance to date.  Ginger Willson, Director for the Department of Energy, says the state looked at 38 commercial buildings in different stages of construction…

 

The code requires 90% compliance by 2017, and Willson says this check allowed the state to form a baseline and understand areas of compliance that need improvement by that deadline…

 

Willson says students from the University of Nebraska were extremely helpful in completing the check.  Future energy code education and experience in knowing and checking compliance for those codes will be a focus for architecture and construction management students.
