Thank you to everyone who applied for the 2024 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) Development Committees. With nearly 350 applications submitted, we are greatly encouraged by the extensive interest in serving on these committees and immense support for advancing energy efficiency and building safety in our communities. The applicants represent:
- All nine identified interest groups – government regulators, public segments, consumers, manufacturers, builders, standards promulgators/testing laboratories, users, utilities and insurance;
- Federal, state and local government regulators;
- 42 U.S. states and 14 climate zones;
- Building safety professionals from many disciplines including code officials, architects, engineers, interior designs, energy raters, electricians, home builders, contractors and building owners; and,
- Wood, masonry, steel, concrete, electrical, mechanical, water, insulation, HVAC, brick, fenestration and envelope manufacturers.
Next, the International Code Council Board of Directors will consider the nominations and appoint the committees. Committee members will be informed via email of their appointment. We anticipate the first meeting of the committees to occur in summer 2021.
Even if you are not a member of the IECC Committees, we encourage you to get involved in the development process. The IECC establishes the minimum set of requirements for energy efficiency used by communities around the world. Our communities need you to get involved to help guide the future of energy efficiency.
The Development Committees will establish work groups which will allow for greater deliberation or focus on particular topic areas. The work groups are open to all interested parties, not just committee members. Additionally, anyone can submit a code change proposal to the committee and the committee will produce a draft document for public comment once the change proposals are acted on by the committee
