The 2018 Seattle Energy Code went into effect on March 15, with a number of significant changes from the prior edition that impact HVAC systems, lighting, water heating, energy modeling, and more. These changes continue Seattle’s move towards a high-efficiency, carbon neutral building stock.
Seattle City Light will present three free energy code webinars in June through its Lighting Design Lab. Each training will run from 10:00 to noon. Find more information at 2021 Classes | Lighting Design Lab.

Recordings of energy code webinars from earlier this spring can be viewed anytime. The “Cost-Effective Code Compliance” series includes four 2.5-hour classes covering building envelope, HVAC, lighting, and water heating.
