2016 Title 24 Code Change Advocacy

Through Codes and Standards Enhancement (CASE) Reports, the IOUs/POUs will provide California Energy Commission with the technical and cost-effectiveness information required to make informed judgments on proposed standards for promising energy efficiency design practices and technologies. Stakeholder Meetings provide an opportunity for stakeholders to help inform the development of these codes change proposals. The IOUs/POUs encourage participation in this step of the process through the submission of data— both primary sources and references to existing data, e.g., reports, spreadsheets, etc.

The following list presents the CASE topics that the IOUs/POUs are pursed for the 2016 code cycle. Due to the change in the effective date of the 2013 Title 24 Standards and quickly approaching CASE Reports deadline for the 2016 Title 24 Standards, the IOUs/POUs are pursuing fewer topics than originally projected.
