GAF x COTE: Looking at the Future
This 2019 video was compiled by GAF, a COTE sponsor.
The ZERO Code Renewable Energy Appendix, if approved by the International Code Council (ICC) voting members via online vote in November, will become part of the 2021 IECC (International Energy Conservation Code).
The appendix will enable local jurisdictions to adopt a zero-net-carbon building standard as part of the IECC code.
AIA has asked all its members to contact their states, cities, and code officials to support the vote in favor of the ZERO Code Renewable Energy Appendix.
