The State of Nebraska has recently updated their statewide building energy code from the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) to the 2018 IECC, making them a national leader in efficient building codes. The residential energy code has had more impact on the design and construction of homes than any other code. Understanding the requirements is critical not only for compliance, but also to ensure that homes are safe, resilient, healthy and efficient. Our Nebraska Energy Codes Training Program will provide an in depth look at the residential energy code.
