BCAP provides custom-tailored assistance on building energy code adoption and implementation. We assist state and local regulatory and legislative bodies and help coordinate others representing industry, consumers, labor, and environmental interests. BCAP provides states with code adoption support on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and coordinates with DOE technical assistance (see energycodes.gov for more information).
BCAP receives additional funding from private foundations, and works with states as a part of State Energy Program (SEP) grant projects. BCAP collaborates with regional energy efficiency organizations, state energy offices, environmental groups, industry, utilities, and other entities to form and sustain strong relationships and facilitate coordination on mutual goals.
Mission: The Building Codes Assistance Program strives to be the premier resource for energy code support, coordination, technical assistance, news and information. Our mission is to reduce the energy consumed in the construction and operations of buildings by working with national, state, and local governments and other stakeholders to promote the adoption and implementation of building codes and standards.
