2016 Title 24 CASE Topics

The Statewide CASE Team (Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Company, San Diego Gas & Electric Company, and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power) are actively supporting the California Energy Commission in updating the California Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24). Their joint intent is to achieve significant energy savings through the development of reasonable, responsible, and cost-effective code change proposals for the 2016 code update and beyond.

Through Codes and Standards Enhancement (CASE) Studies, the Codes and Standards Program provided standards and code-setting bodies with the technical and cost-effectiveness information required to make informed judgments on proposed regulations for promising energy efficiency design practices and technologies. Thanks to all who responded to the request for input for the 2016 code update cycle and submitted input.
