The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is soliciting public input on the methodology developed by the DOE to assist in assessing compliance with building energy codes at the local, state and national levels. To provide technical assistance for states implementing building energy codes, DOE developed and piloted a compliance methodology across several U.S. states. The experiences of those participating in these pilot studies have led to a number of recommendations and potential changes to the DOE methodology.

The DOE is interested in receiving broad public input on not only this methodology, but also on fundamental assumptions and approaches to measuring compliance with building energy codes. This notice identifies several areas in which DOE is particularly interested in receiving information; however, any input and suggestions considered relevant to the topic are welcome.

Written comments and information are requested on or before September 5, 2013.

For more information go to the DOE website.
