Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) are becoming an important form of housing in California but designing and building these units to comply with the 2019 Energy Code can be challenging. This course covers the Prescriptive requirements that apply to new ADUs and discusses both minimum requirements and design options for compliance.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Determine if an ADU is considered an addition, or a new residential building
  • Consider envelope options for ADU additions and new ADUs
  • Describe the renewable energy requirements for ADU additions and new ADUs (PV / Battery)
  • Identify the HVAC/Domestic hot water (DHW) equipment and HERS verification measures options that provide ADU design flexibility and how utility source impacts those choices

Understanding the solar photovoltaic (PV) requirements for new single-family and low-rise multifamily buildings under the 2019 Energy Code can be daunting. Join us for this presentation where we review not only the minimum PV requirements of the Energy Code, but also PV exemptions. We also explore how battery storage systems can support design flexibility.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Describe when renewables are required for compliance with the 2019 Energy Code
  • Determine the minimum PV kW required by the Energy Code
  • Describe how an all-electric design may dictate a different PV strategy than a mixed-fuel design
  • Outline appropriate strategies for battery storage credits to support building design flexibility
  • Identify where to go for more guidance on this topic

Wondering what’s on the horizon with the new California Energy Code (Title 24, Part 6)? Join us for this presentation focused on what’s new for nonresidential mechanical systems. We will review the 2022 Energy Code Mandatory and Prescriptive requirements for nonresidential HVAC and Covered Processes such as warehouse and commercial refrigeration, process boilers, computer rooms and controlled environment horticulture. We also will take a look at the new requirements for service water heating in nonresidential, hotel/motel and multifamily buildings.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Describe the changes to nonresidential HVAC Mandatory and Prescriptive measures
  • Identify major updates to the mechanical system covered process requirements
  • Recognize the new requirements for domestic/service hot water systems for nonresidential, hotel/motel and multifamily occupancies
  • State (or identify) when the 2022 Energy Code requirements go into effect
  • Locate sources for more guidance on this topic

The 2022 California Energy Code has introduced significant changes for Residential occupancies, from how these occupancies are to be classified and organized within the code to the introduction of new Mandatory and Prescriptive measures facilitating preparation for future single-family all electric residences. Join us for this presentation where we review not only the all-electric preparation requirements of the Energy Code, but also PV exemptions. We will also explore preparation for future all-electric buildings in the Energy Code requirements for heat pump space heating, domestic hot water and battery-ready electrical panel configuration.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Cite the date when 2022 Energy Code requirements will go into effect
  • Describe how 2019 Residential occupancy classifications have been reorganized in 2022 Energy Code along with their corresponding code sections
  • Discuss updates to 2022 Mandatory Measures and Prescriptive requirements involving preparation for future single-family all electric residences
  • Recognize when solar photovoltaic and battery systems are required in single-family homes
  • Discuss 2022 updates to Prescriptive requirements involving heat pump space heating and domestic hot water
  • Identify online resources for more guidance on these topics

The 2022 Energy Code has introduced significant changes for multifamily occupancies, from how these occupancies are to be classified and organized within the code to the introduction of new Mandatory and Prescriptive measures facilitating preparation for future multifamily all-electric buildings. Join us for this presentation where we review not only the all-electric preparation requirements of the Energy Code, but also PV exemptions. We will also explore preparation for future all-electric buildings in the Energy Code requirements for HVAC systems, domestic hot water and battery storage.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Cite the date when 2022 Energy Code requirements will go into effect
  • Describe how 2019 multifamily occupancy classifications have been reorganized in 2022 Energy Code along with their corresponding code sections
  • Identify updates to 2022 Mandatory Measures related to multifamily electric ready
  • Discuss updates to 2022 Prescriptive HVAC and domestic hot water requirements related to preparation for future multifamily all-electric buildings
  • Recognize when solar photovoltaic and battery systems are required in multifamily buildings Identify online resources for more guidance on these topics
