NBI releases a 20% model energy stretch code

New Stretch Code to Help Cities and States Fast-Track Building Energy Savings

With increasing pressure to deliver on energy and climate action goals, cities and states are turning to more stringent building energy codes as an effective strategy to increase building energy efficiency and accelerate progress on outcomes. By adopting forward-looking stretch building codes, jurisdictions can increase the rate at which advances in building energy performance are incorporated into the building stock to meet policy goals.

Adopting stretch codes can drastically improve building energy efficiency beyond existing codes and put buildings on a path to ultra-low energy performance.
