Codes and Standards: Energy Code Training
All new buildings built in the State of Illinois are required to meet the minimum standards of the current Illinois Energy Conservation Code (IL ECC). SEDAC provides training to increase awareness of the Illinois Conservation Code and to improve the energy efficiency of new construction and renovation in Illinois. SEDAC offers workshops, webinars, online training, resources, and technical support. This program is funded by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Office of Energy. Learn more about our training opportunities at sedac.org/energy-code, or call us at 800.214.7954 if you have an energy code question.
The current version of the code references the following model code or standards to meet compliance:
- International Energy Conservation Code® (IECC) - 2015
- ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1 Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings (ASHRAE 90.1) - 2013
While the Illinois Energy Conservation Code sets the required minimum energy efficiency standard for new buildings and major renovations, SEDAC recommends the use of additional standards and references to achieve higher (beyond-code) energy efficiency goals. Recommended references and standards include:
- International Green Construction Code (IgCC) 2015
- ASHRAE 189.1-2014, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings
