The CEA kicked off a major initiative to spur gains in building energy efficiency through the development and deployment of an outcome-based energy code compliance strategy with its first focused workshop in mid-December 2018.
The CEA hosted an invitation-only, daylong event to explore policy directions for California’s 2022 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24-2022) in order to continue the state’s momentum toward electrification, decarbonization and greater energy efficiency.
The CEA has published a comprehensive HVAC industry modernization plan in support of California Senate Bill 1414 that shows how today’s technology can be leveraged to quickly meet the bill’s important mandates. SB 1414 calls for the California Energy Commission to adopt a plan by January 2019 to improve compliance in the installation of air conditioning and heat pump systems.
