Support Section R408 Passive House to be included into the New York City Energy Conservation Code (NYCECC)

The proposed bill Introduction No. 1816 of 2019 incorporates the latest version of the New York Stretch Energy Code (NYStretch) as required by Local Law 32 for the year 2018. Local Law 32 mandates that the City amend the NYCECC to align it with the latest version of the NYStretch Energy Code-2020 developed by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

The proposed bill 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). You can submit your statement of support in written form to council member Robert E. Cornegy, Jr. (RCornegy@council.nyc.gov), chair of the Committee on Housing and Buildings.
