Energy Code Training

Energy Code Training

IBTS is currently offering free NY Energy Code Training Webinars for municipal code officials, design professionals, energy professionals and members of the construction trades. IBTS is offering both Residential and Commercial webinar trainings, all designed to improve compliance with ECCCNYS-2016.

In New York, the Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (the “Energy Code”) is a minimum building standard for energy efficiency, applicable to new construction and renovation of commercial and residential buildings. The Energy Code is one of nine building codes in New York State, making implementation and enforcement complex and time consuming. Buildings in New York represent approximately 60% of the State’s total energy consumption, so there is significant opportunity for energy savings.

IBTS has been selected to support NYSERDA in providing a range of free and low-cost training and other support services to municipal code officials, design professionals, energy professionals and members of the construction trades, all designed to improve compliance with the Energy Code.
