Title 24 Calculations: California Energy Standards Code

rescheck-calculation

What is Title 24 and Why do I need it?

The state of California recognizes the need to enforce energy efficiency standards in new and modified houses or commercial buildings.  Energy efficiency reduces the cost of electricity and its impact on the enviroment.  In addition, energy efficiency improves comfort inside buildings or homes and the access and reliability of electricity across the state.

The state of California enacted the Title 24 Energy Standards Code to ensure every home or building meets the minimum energy efficiency standards.  Therefore,  any new construction or modification project Residential/Commercial requires a Title 24 Energy Standard Compliance calculation to obtain all required construction permits and licenses.

What’s The Main Goal?

Title 24 Energy Standards Code is set out to reduce energy consumption across the state. In return, homeowners save money in electrical bills, the state has a healthy and stable economy and the environment receives a reduced negative impact.

The updated 2008 Title 24 Energy Standards Code for residential and nonresidential buildings is expected to reduce the growth in electricity use by 561 gigawatt-hours per year (GWh/yr) and reduce the growth in gas use by 19 million therms per year (therms/yr). These savings are cumulative resulting in 6 times the annual saving over the 3 years to the next Title 24 standard cycle.

Title 24 on Commercial Buildings

Buildings are one of the major electricity spenders. During the California energy crisis in 2000/2001 and the east coast blackout in the summer of 2003, the state’s fragile electric distribution network and system was overload by excessive demand from buildings creating unstable conditions.

Consequently, blackouts displayed serious disruption in businesses that could potentially cost the state’s economy billions of dollars. Since the California electricity crisis, the Energy Commission placed more and more emphasis on demand reductions. The 2008 Title 24 standards are expected to reduce electric demand by 131.8 MW each year and 36.6 MW are attributable to low-rise residential buildings.

Why Leave it to The Experts?

Energy savings and Energy demand savings accumulate each year in a similar manner. Updates and adjustments to the Title 24 standards are performed periodically to account for improvements in conservation technologies, fluctuation in the prices of fuels and energy-conserving strategies, and improved analysis techniques in building energy performance. In addition, modifications are also made to further improve compliance and enforcement of the Title 24 standards.
