We take it for granted that the buildings we live and work in meet basic health and safety requirements--thanks to building codes, which carry the force of law. A less familiar set of codes are building energy codes, which ensure that structures meet a minimum standard of energy efficiency. Making these codes progressively smarter and stronger is one of the best ways to cut building energy use, which makes up about 40 percent of total U.S. energy use. At IMT, we work with our partners to develop tomorrow's codes, and we promote best practices to improve compliance with today's.
