The California Energy Commission has published the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The updated standards take effect January 2, 2020. The new standards include changes affecting newly constructed buildings, additions and alterations to existing buildings.

We are proud to announce that CEA’s recommendations for simplified lighting alterations and automated demand response requirements have been incorporated under Section 141.0 and 110.12, respectively. The publication of these recommendations under the 2019 Energy Standards represents a significant milestone for the Alliance. CEA would like to thank its members, CEC staff and other participants for their contributions of time and expertise in development of these updates.
