2013 BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS – BACKGROUND

First adopted in 1977, the Standards have been periodically updated approximately on a three-year cycle. The most recent previous to this update, was the 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, which went into effect on January 1, 2010.

The upgraded Standards are planned to go into effect in conjunction with the triennial upgrade of the other parts of the California Building Standards Code, and will be published as the 2013 California Energy Code. The updated Standards will improve upon the 2008 Standards and will implement a wide variety of state energy policy directives.
