Free Webinar to Focus on Outcome-Based Pathways to Achieve Energy Performance

The National Institute of Building Sciences will host a free webinar April 10, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm EST, to introduce an emerging energy performance concept—outcome-based pathways. This new approach to achieving efficient energy use addresses the needs and challenges of numerous stakeholders in the building industry.

Between their design and operation, buildings are responsible for 40 percent of the nation’s total primary energy use. Policymakers recognize that addressing building sector energy use is essential to achieving overall energy-use reductions. However, current energy codes and standards focus on building design while largely ignoring building operations—where most of the energy is being used. These current, purely design-focused strategies do not provide the measurable and verifiable results policymakers are looking for. Further, members of the building industry, from designers to product manufacturers to building owners, are looking for flexibility in methods for achieving energy-efficiency goals.

Outcome-based pathways are a new approach to achieving efficient energy use that address the needs and challenges of numerous stakeholders in the building industry.

Earlier this year, a group of industry representatives under the leadership of the Institute, submitted a proposed code change to the International Green Construction Code (IgCC). The “Outcome-based Pathway” proposal appeared in the IgCC monograph of proposed code changes, which will be heard by the IgCC Energy/Water Committee during the International Code Council’s Committee Action Hearings, to be held this April 27 through May 4, in Memphis, Tennessee.

The April 10 webinar will provide an overview of this new energy performance approach.

Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA, President, National Institute of Building Sciences
