2024 IECC Process & Appeals Summary

The International Code Council (ICC) Board of Directors recently concluded its review and decision-making process regarding the 2024 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), significantly impacting future building energy conservation measures. The board’s decisions were influenced by appeals from various stakeholders, including notable industry groups such as the American Gas Association (AGA), American Public Gas Association (APGA), The National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International, ICC Region VI, and the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). These appeals centered around proposed provisions in the 2024 IECC that were perceived to potentially limit the use of natural gas in favor of electrically powered solutions in buildings.
