Texas Building Energy Code Update Workshops Coming to Houston and Sugar Land

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Texas State Energy Conservation Office announced in July that registration had begun for statewide workshops focused on the updates to the State building energy code. The 2009 IECC for Residential and Commercial Construction became effective on April 1, 2011, and the 2009 IRC: Chapter 11 will become effective on January 1, 2012.

Apple Energy Group, the training provider, has conducted these 3-hour workshops in Austin, San Antonio,Houston, and the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. Upcoming workshops will be held in Houston onSeptember 8 and in Sugar Land on September 9, 2011. Over the next 5 months, the Texas Building Energy Code Update Workshops will be presented in over 30 cities throughout the state. The schedule and more information for registration are available at www.TXEnergyCodeTraining.org. A 2009 IECC codebook is included with registration.

The workshops will provide a thorough, yet concise review of the changes to the Texas Building Energy Code. A 3-hour Residential Workshop and a separate 3-hour Commercial Workshop will be offered to review these updates and offer guidance to serve the specific needs of the attendees. Builders, architects, building officials, energy engineers, contractors, inspectors, building suppliers and others affected by these changes are invited to register and attend. The workshops have been approved for continuing education credits by the American Institute of Architects, the International Code Council, the Building Performance Institute, and the American Society of Home Inspectors.

The Texas Building Energy Code Update Workshops play an important role in ensuring that building professionals across the State understand the changes to the code and are prepared to implement the new building energy standard. With Texas buildings accounting for nearly 40 percent of the State’s total energy use, implementing energy efficient design that meets the requirements of the new state energy code is as important as ever. Considering that Texas is the fifth largest energy consumer in the world, and the largest state consumer in the U.S., energy efficiency is essential and is being described as “Texas’ newest energy resource.” For more information regarding the Texas Building Energy Code, visit www.txbuildingenergycode.org.
