Effective Jan. 1, 2020, all new health care facility construction will be subject to California Energy Code regulations (Title 24, Part 6, 2019). These regulations may affect an array of features including the building envelope, lighting and controls, energy efficiency ratings, commissioning and performance modeling.

During this forum, representatives from the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) Facilities Development Division will review the changes specific to health care facilities. The forum will also allow participants to submit their feedback on the regulations. Comments are due to the CEC by Oct. 20. After that date, opportunities for stakeholders to shape the final regulations will be limited.

Recommended for:
Chief operating officers, chief compliance officers, plant managers, construction directors and managers, architects and engineers, inspectors of record.
