NH Building Energy Code Compliance Roadmap Report

The NH Building Energy Code Compliance Roadmap Report

A few of the key goals of the NH Energy Code Challenge project were to map out NH's existing energy code landscape, identify barriers to energy code compliance across the state's residential and commercial building sectors, and develop a plan of action outlining NH-specific recommendations for achieving 90% energy code compliance by 2017. The comprehensive NH Building Energy Code Compliance Roadmap report represents the culmination of these efforts and presents the detailed findings and recommendations resulting from program activities.

The full report is broken into three sections:
