Energy Efficiency and Building Codes Working Group (no longer active)

The Energy Efficiency Building Codes Working Group, which was established in 2009, is no longer active. The Working Group held several meetings in 2009 and 2010 and endorsed an approach that encouraged voluntary adoption by local jurisdictions and the development of effective equivalency options for builders and owners. The Working group focused on the following tasks:

  1. Targeting larger jurisdictions and those with the most building activity and encourage voluntary adoption of building energy codes.
  2. Developing easy-to-use enforcement checklist, based on the existing Kansas Energy Efficiency Disclosure form.
  3. Promote residential and commercial retrofits through statewide deployment of Efficiency Kansas, the Facility Conservation Improvement Program (FCIP), and the Weatherization Assistance Program.
  4. Amend K.S.A. 66-1227 to adopt the target energy codes as "applicable state standards" for new and renovated residential and commercial construction and to officially encourage voluntary adoption of such codes by local jurisdictions.
  5. Amend K.S.A. 66-1228 to update Kansas Energy Efficiency Disclosure Form for new residential construction using IECC 2009 standards.
