2022 California Title-24 Energy Code (1.5 LU|ZNCD)

The state of California continues leading the efforts in electrification and decarbonization through codes and regulations both at the state and local jurisdiction levels. Join this course to learn about the major revisions in the new California Title-24 2022 energy code as they introduce new requirements on building envelope and building systems. The session will also provide a brief overview of CA city reach codes and available electrification technologies. As they represent the biggest change in the new energy code, the new PV array and battery system requirements are emphasized together with sample calculations for necessary system capacities. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify major areas of changes in the new CA Title 24 2022 Energy Code (nonresidential & multifamily sections).
  2. Get an overview of CA city reach codes
  3. Learn how to estimate the code required PV array and battery capacity for a typical new building.
  4. Get familiar with electrification technologies and impact on new building electrical service requirements.
