Energy Commission Webinar: Multifamily Restructuring, Economizing, ACM Approval, and Data Registry Requirement
California Energy Commission (CEC) staff will conduct a series of workshops to present and discuss proposed changes to the 2022 California Energy Code (Energy Code). The goal of these workshops is to solicit feedback from concerned or affected members of the public before the start of the formal rulemaking process.
Workshops will be announced two weeks prior to their schedule date. For the most recent updates, visit the Energy Commission Docket Number 19-BSTD-03
On October 21, 2020 the Energy Commission announced the following webinar:
Multifamily Restructuring, Economizing,
ACM Approval, and Data Registry
December 2, 2020
This webinar will include staff presentations on proposed new standards for air infiltration in commercial buildings and ventilation for indoor air quality in residential dwelling units in the 2022 Energy Code. There will be opportunities for public comment.
Specific topics of discussion include (in order of expected agenda placement):
- Alternate compliance method approval manual provisions – this manual specifies the modeling rules required for building simulation software used to demonstrate performance based compliance with the Energy Code.
- Nonresidential data registry provisions – these provisions specify possible future collection of compliance documentation data by the CEC, either directly into a statewide repository or indirectly through third-party registries.
- Economizer provisions – these provisions specify the required use of economizers in nonresidential buildings to provide outside air for ventilation cooling instead of air conditioning when outdoor temperatures meet building comfort conditions.
- Restructuring of code provisions applicable to multifamily buildings – these provisions are the culmination of the CEC efforts to place a major new focus on multifamily buildings, including alignment of requirements for low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise buildings and
relocation of multifamily requirements into their own chapters within the Energy Code.
