Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP)
BCAP is a non-profit advocacy organization established in 1994 as a joint initiative of the Alliance to SaveEnergy, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, and the Natural Resources DefenseCouncil. BCAP focuses on providing state and local governments in the U.S., as well as stakeholderorganizations, with support on code adoption and implementation through direct assistance, research,data analysis, and coordination with other activities and allies. With over sixteen years of experiencesupporting numerous state energy offices and city building departments, along with tracking codeactivities across the country, BCAP is well-positioned to assist in local and statewide activity to advancecodes. As a trusted resource, BCAP is able to identify and navigate past policy and programmatic pitfallsto help states and jurisdictions put the best possible strategy in place to improve efficiency in both newand existing buildings. Our work pulls together local efforts, identifies national-scale issues, and providesa broad perspective, unbiased by corporate/material interests. BCAP also hosts OCEAN—an onlineinternational best practice network for energy codes—and is increasingly working abroad to gather andshare best practices that provide value across organizations.
