Abstract

The wide use of ratings and potential for beyond-code construction present a large opportunity for cost-effective savings and market transformation through increased national coordination. The CEESM Residential New Construction Initiative implements a tiered specification with performance-based levels that will help drive industry to adopt increasingly efficient new construction practices, support the development and adoption of future building codes that align with program goals, and promote increased stability in a traditionally fragmented market of energy efficiency targets. The Residential New Construction Initiative is designed to create a foundation from which members are able to work collaboratively to transform the landscape for newly built homes.
