DEDICATED TO THE ADOPTION, IMPLEMENTATION, AND ADVANCEMENT OF BUILDING ENERGY CODES
the building codes assistance project today
009 was a truly unique year or energy codes andBCAP. The American Recovery and ReinvestmentAct (ARRA) brought codes ront and center– usingunding prerequisites to highlight both the im-portance and status o adoption and compliancein the states. Many states moved orward quicklyto adopt updated energy codes, some moresuccessully than others; opposition to strongerenergy codes certainly remains solid. In act, overtwo-thirds o all states took action towards adopt-ing the latest model energy codes but, as wereect back on 009, sixteen states have movedtheir code orward and at least two o those areacing possible reversals. Although the task re-mains extraordinary, the eort to help states makeprogress is clearly energized. There is a distinctawareness among advocates that this is the timeor energy codes to move. States have an unprec-edented opportunity to embrace proven cost-eective strategies in current codes to strengthentheir building sectors and leverage codes as aneective policy or pushing the nation’s housingmarket toward zero emissions. To assist in this task, BCAP has grown, addingnew initiatives, online tools, and sta. One o our most exciting initiatives o 009 is our newwebsite, OCEAN – the Online Code Environmentand Advocacy Network. This innovative site isdesigned to leverage our resources by provid-ing code advocates with a place to share bestpractices and inormation and collaborate in realtime. While BCAP has long worked directly withdisparate groups around the common goal o securing the implementation o energy codes, thedevelopment o OCEAN represents a sea-changein the way BCAP does business. OCEAN will bringresources and people together in a new way toexpand our reach and impact. To accomplish this goal, our sta has expandedto bring on valuable new skills and energy –strengthening our program work and leadingnew eorts. By bringing in new talent with exper-tise in building practice, the legislative process,on-the-ground outreach, and communications,BCAP is better positioned to deploy our resourcesstrategically to improve energy code adoptionand compliance. The stakes o the work ahead are high. Statesmaking advances last year will need additionalsupport to continue their positive momentum.Many states and jurisdictions are in unchartedterritory, with new codes and little experiencewith enorcement and compliance. Providingassistance to these places will dene our work in010 and in the years to come. We are thankul toour many supporters and look orward to continu-ing to work with our many allied organizationsto “ght the good ght” to save energy, protectconsumers, and improve our built environment.
