Building Codes and Inspections

States and local governments can adopt building energy codes to ensure that new construction or renovation projects are built to include energy efficiency. Government entities can also train building professionals in energy code compliance and energy efficiency. The DOE supports building energy codes and standards through its Building Energy Codes Program and by providing funding through the SEP and EECBG Programs. Below you will find resources, best practices, and other tools that can help guide you in developing advanced green and sustainable building codes and inspection programs.
