As many of you know, the 2010 Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS-2010)
is now enforced throughout New York State and promises to have a major impact on energy use. The code regulates the design and construction of buildings for the effective use of energy while providing flexibility to allow innovative approaches and techniques. It includes additional mandatory provisions and requires buildings to be substantially more energy efficient than the 2007 edition.
Urban Green Council and the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects have developed a four-hour course to familiarize architects and engineers with the ECCCNYS-2010, the fundamentals of low energy design, and the processes available to demonstrate compliance. This program is funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
The course addresses commercial buildings, including residential buildings over three stories. It also addresses the New York City Energy Conservation Code (NYCECC), which incorporates ECCCNYS-2010, but is more stringent. ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1 2007, an alternative compliance pathway for meeting the requirements of ECCCNYS-2010, will be referenced but not covered in detail.
Training sessions are being presented at the Center for Architecture and are currently scheduled through September 2012.
If none of the dates below work for you, check back for additional dates in October and November.
