Codes and Standards
Such a boring topic, but so crucial! The universe of folks who understand the interplay between national model codes and federal appliance and efficiency standards is extremely small.
The details matter, especially in the land of test procedures, product categories, multi-year rule makings, and adoption hearings.
Ember advises NGOs, building owners, and product manufacturers on the codes and standards process, embedded barriers, and how best to engage. Beyond codes and standards, voluntary rating systems and best-in-class labels exist for a reason. If you do the work, take the credit!
It’s a long game, don’t play for a short amount of time.
