Following four public review sessions, the draft 2015 Seattle Commercial Energy Code is now posted on our 2015 Seattle Codes Adoption website. Our thanks to the dozens of local experts who volunteered their time through these hours of meetings, refining and improving the proposals. Seattle is committed to being a carbon-neutral city by the year 2050, and increasing the energy efficiency of our building stock will be a critical component of that transition.
2015 Seattle Energy Code Development
Seattle DCI will hold a series of public meetings during January and February to review proposed changes to the “Commercial Buildings” provisions of the 2015 Seattle Energy Code. (The City does not amend the residential portion of the code.) We will post the proposals that are scheduled for discussion in advance of each meeting.
Open House for Green Code Provisions
DPD invites you to join us at an open house on October 29 to review and discuss draft green code provisions. These provisions are under consideration by the City of Seattle and other jurisdictions within the Puget Sound Region. The Green Code Provisions address water conservation, material conservation, and sustainable transportation. Please come to learn more and provide your feedback on these proposals.
