The Iowa Energy Center is pleased to announce a free seminar/webinar regarding energy code compliance in Iowa by Jeff Boldt of KJWW Engineering. Many states will adopt the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) 2012. Iowa plans to adopt IECC-2012 on January 1, 2014 with an effective date a few months later. This code permits two prescriptive compliance paths – the IECC prescriptive path and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 prescriptive path. There are significant differences between these two codes. Mr. Boldt’s presentation covers the basics of federal law regarding state energy codes and compares the two prescriptive compliance options so that project teams can decide which is the correct compliance path for their project
