International Energy Conservation Code / Electrical

Some electrical energy concepts that appeared in the technical debates over the next edition of the International Energy Conservation Code will likely find their way onto the agenda of the ICC Group C codes; namely the International Green Construction Code.

International Energy Conservation Code / Electrical

Electrical Building World’s Columbian Exposition | Chicago (1892)

The current version of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), available for public access, is linked below:

2018 International Energy Conservation Code

The IECC at is widely incorporated by reference into federal, state and local energy conservation legislation (which then finds its away into facility design guidelines in the education industry).  For most of last year were were tracking candidate changes for the 2021 revision; with special attention to electrical energy concepts; easy enough to do.  We find the word “electrical” appeared 163 times in the transcript of proposed changes; linked below (730 pages).

2019 GROUP B PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE I-CODES ALBUQUERQUE COMMITTEE ACTION HEARINGS

For example:

CE108-19 | Data Centers

CE111-19*, et al | Fault Detection

CE113-19 | HVAC equipment

CE136-19 | Fan Nameplate Electrical Power & Fan Efficiency

CE166-19, et. al* | Occupancy Sensors

CE174-119, et. al*  | Lighting and Controls

CE212-19 | Elevator regenerative power & voltage drop (ON THE AGENDA OF THE MONTHLY ELEVATOR & ESCALATOR MEETING)

CE213-19 | Escalator & moving walk regenerative power (ON THE AGENDA OF THE MONTHLY ELEVATOR & ESCALATOR MEETING)

CE214-19 | Include customer-owned service conductors in the 5 percent voltage drop limit identified in the National Electrical Code

CE215-19*, et al | More electrical power monitoring hardware

CE216-19*. et al | More automatic receptacle control hardware

CE217-19 | Include electric vehicle charging fixtures in new construction

CE219-19 | Expansion of required energy efficiency requirements

CE224-19 | HVAC system electrical power efficiency requirements

CE237-19*. et al | More electrical power monitoring hardware

CE238-19 | Electrical Energy Storage Systems

CE261-19 | Change of occupancy energy use intensity

CE262-19 | Electrical energy storage system-ready area

CE263-19 Part I&II&III* | Required PV systems for all commercial buildings larger than 5000 square feet/community solar facilities

CE265-19 | Energy Storage Systems

The Group B Cycle in ended in December.  Preliminary balloting results are linked below:

FINAL PUBLIC COMMENT HEARING RESULTS ON THE 2019 PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE INTERNATIONAL CODES – GROUP B

Source: Engineering-News Record

Whatever ever proposals failed in the 2021 IECC revision cycle may find their way into the forthcoming Group C revision cycle that features the International Green Construction Code (IgCC).   When public proposals open for the IgCC we will pass that information along to our colleagues.  You may do so yourself by registering your interest in ICC consensus products by clicking here: ICC Code Development.

We scan action in the ICC suite of consensus products at least once per month.   See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting;open to everyone.

Issue: [16-169]

Category: Architectural, Facility Asset Management, Space Planning

Colleagues: Mike Anthony, Scott Gibbs, Jim Harvey, Jose Meijer,

* There are so many proposals for expansion of electrical control, monitoring and metering hardware that we identify only one of many conceptually related proposals here.   Refer to the standing agenda of the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee for additional technical specifics.
