The BC Energy Step Code is an optional compliance path in the BC Building Code that local governments may use, if they wish, to incentivize or require a level of energy efficiency in new construction that goes above and beyond the requirements of the BC Building Code. Builders may voluntarily use the BC Energy Step Code as a new compliance path for meeting the energy-efficiency requirements of the BC Building Code. Learn more about the BC Energy Step Code and local government implementation efforts.
THE ENERGY STEP CODE COUNCIL
The Energy Step Code Council, an advisory body, supports local governments and industry as both begin putting the BC Energy Step Code to work. It serves as a “bridge” between governments, industry, and utilities, to identify and resolve implementation issues, provide support and resources, and ensure local governments use the regulation prudently.
