Government Support

Government Activities Committee (GAC) is currently working on a state effort to obtain K-12 public schools EUI and benchmark the better performing ones in the EPA Certified Energy Star program. The chapter is coordinating probono inspectors who are WV ASHRAE members to schools without EUI data. As of April 2020, over 400 schools have been bench marked and the project team has Energy Certified 6 school buildings.

The WV State Commercial Building Energy Code is ASHRAE 90.1-2010.

The Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) has created a series of maps to provide a national snapshot of building energy code adoption and implementation status. Visit the bcapcodes.org website to view code status maps and view the historic timeline illustration of West Virginia energy code adoption.
