Building Energy Codes Program

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is working to improve the energy efficiency of the Nation’s buildings through new technologies and better building practices. Energy-efficient buildings improve the lives of Americans by saving consumers money, lessening our demand for fossil fuels, decreasing the need for new power generation, and reducing environmental emissions.

DOE’s Building Energy Codes Program is an information resource on national model energy codes. We work with other government agencies, state and local jurisdictions, national code organizations, and industry to promote stronger building energy codes and help states adopt, implement, and enforce those codes.
