Building Energy Codes Program

The US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Building Energy Codes Program (BECP) was established in 1991 (originally called the Building Standards and Guidelines Program), with its activities defined by the Energy Conservation and Production Act (ECPA). 94-385), as amended, and the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) (Pub.Lu. 110-140). These statutes can be used to develop models of energy-saving codes, and to determine the status of the product. The BECP is part of DOE’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building Technologies Office.

BECP focuses on three key building energy codes areas: model code development, adoption, and compliance.

DOE is designed by the United States of America and the United States.

DOE is responsible for the development of energy efficiency and energy efficiency, including the adoption of all technologically and economically feasible measures.

DOE is directed by statute to provide technical assistance to states implementing energy codes.
