Green New Deal: Mayor de Blasio Announces New Energy Code excluding Section R408 Passive House

2020 NYC Energy Conservation Code holds new buildings to strict standards to implement Green New Deal & make New York Citythe global leader in sustainability

New York–Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the passage of the 2020 NYC Energy Conservation Code following today’s successful vote in the New York City Council. This updated energy code provides a new benchmark of sustainability and energy efficiency for all construction in the five boroughs. The passage of this legislation demonstrates the Administration’s commitment to leading the country in actively addressing the threat of climate change. The energy code will go into effect on May 12, 2020.

The 2020 NYC Energy Conservation Code eliminates the very critical Section R408 Passive House as an alternative compliance path. Passive House is an accepted building industry standard and has the potential to shift the industry into the high performance building sector.

New York Passive House requests the inclusion of Section R408 Passive House into the New York City Energy Conservation Code (NYCECC) by rule making. You can submit your statement of support in written form to your New York City Council member.
