Video Walkthrough of the NRCC-ELC-E Dynamic Form
In 2017, the California Energy Commission began updating California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code or Title 24, Part 6) nonresidential compliance forms so each measure area has a single dynamic form that guides you as you complete each section. This two-minute demonstration shows you how to use the dynamic form to document Prescriptive compliance with the Energy Code for nonresidential electrical power distribution — for both new and altered power distribution systems. The video reveals how the dynamic form NRCC-ELC-E functions with real project data. As you see the 2016 version of the form in action, keep in mind that the 2019 version functions and is organized the same way; only a few of the details are different. To learn more, visit Energy Code Ace Training and select course: 2016 Title 24 Part 6 Essentials: Nonresidential Standards — Dynamic Compliance Forms

2016 Title 24 Part 6 Essentials - Introduction to Residential Modeling
This is a three-hour online "virtual-classroom" training experience that answers the question: “Why bother with the modeling to demonstrate compliance with the California Building Energy Efficiency Standards?” This course does NOT address how to use modeling software or include any hands-on work with the software. Rather, it is designed for individuals who are uncertain of the important role that modeling can play in complying with Title 24, Part 6. Specifically, it illustrates the benefits of using Performance Approach to compliance and how approved modeling software lets you avoid selected Prescriptive requirements by making tradeoffs between building features that are “better and worse” than Prescriptive. After successfully completing this course, participants will be able to: - Compare the Prescriptive and Performance approaches to compliance - Describe, in general terms, how Performance modeling works and what it produces - Use Joint Appendix 4 (JA4) to determine how alternative wall assemblies compare to Prescriptive requirements - Given an example project, identify a set of “tradeoffs” among measures that likely will comply using the Performance approach

Code & Coffee: Residential Modeling – Simple New Construction Project using CBECC-Res
Join host Brian Selby for our 10th Code & Coffee event — a one-hour live stream YouTube show designed to present "how-tos" for industry professionals working with California's building and appliance energy efficiency standards. The setting is informal, the platform interactive, and the java strong! In this episode of Code & Coffee, Brian focuses on residential building performance modeling for compliance with California's Energy Code. He will demonstrate how to perform take-offs from a simple single-family PDF set of plans, modeling the project in CBECC-Res from scratch, and reviewing the CF1R for accuracy.

Decoding Recovery Update: Let's Talk Residential Rebuilding
Gina Rodda of Gabel Energy, along with her guest speaker Brian Selby of Selby Energy, Inc, want you to join the conversation about California’s Building Energy Code. This is a session for those who want to learn more about what triggers Title 24, Part 6 when rebuilding a home in which all or only a part of the structure has been damaged. Discussion topics include: The requirements and triggers for a complete rebuild; When the energy code is NOT triggered for a “repair;" How the requirements change when deciding to incorporate design changes to the original home design; and Where to find tools, training and resources through Energy Code Ace.

Video Walkthrough of the NRCC-ELC-E Dynamic Form
In 2017, the California Energy Commission began updating California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code or Title 24, Part 6) nonresidential compliance forms so each measure area has a single dynamic form that guides you as you complete each section. This two-minute demonstration shows you how to use the dynamic form to document Prescriptive compliance with the Energy Code for nonresidential electrical power distribution — for both new and altered power distribution systems. The video reveals how the dynamic form NRCC-ELC-E functions with real project data. As you see the 2016 version of the form in action, keep in mind that the 2019 version functions and is organized the same way; only a few of the details are different.
