Very low energy buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

With the Climate Train HSB wants to affect the behavior of the public and property owners as well as raise awareness in the media, policymakers on energy use in homes and buildings. By providing concrete answers on how to reduce consumption, we facilitate real action and changed behavior.

CPUC’s action plan offers common-sense strategies for moving the market toward net zero energy performance. Raising minimum energy performance through codes, expanding energy codes to address all energy end uses, developing financial tools for supporting net zero energy construction, and supporting integrated design are all mentioned as strategies for new construction. For existing buildings, the action plan suggests tightening code thresholds, requiring energy and carbon emissions labeling, and supporting occupant feedback and training.
