Welcome to Decrypting the Code, a resource for all things related to the New York State Building Energy Code. Like the Rosetta Stone, this blog will help you crack the code (pun intended), translate complex wording into plain English, share success stories, and talk about related issues. Our hope is for architects, engineers, code officials, and others to gain a better understanding of the Energy Code and apply that knowledge to their projects, gaining a leg up on the competition and achieving better efficiency for their building occupants.
At the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), our experts know the Energy Code, and the recent changes, like the backs of our hands. Whether you’re designing and building a new structure, or renovating an existing one, NYSERDA has excellent resources and support available to you. Let us know what you think and how we can better serve you: ask a question, share a comment or suggest a topic you’d like to see the blog to cover.
