Category: Title 24 Standards
The California Energy Code, part 6 of the California Building Standards Code which is title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, also titled The Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings, were created by the California Building Standards Commission in 1978 in response to a legislative mandate to reduce California’s energy consumption. The standards are updated periodically by the California Energy Commission to allow consideration and possible incorporation of new energy efficiency technologies and methods.
It is a great honor to have Derrick Y. part of the DuctTesters team. The California Association of Building Energy Consultants (CABEC) designed a voluntary mastery certification program for energy consultants to be able to showcase their working knowledge and understanding of the California Energy Efficiency Standards. Individuals wishing to hold this certification must meet a list of qualifications and pass an exam in order to receive a certification. Derrick met all of the CABEC Certified Energy Analyst qualifications and recently became an official 2016 Nonresidential: Certified Energy Analyst (CEA). The qualifications included Derrick passing his CEPE Exam, holding at least one year of experience performing energy compliance calculations, participating in Professional Practice Workshops (PPW) and attending at least six hours a year of continuing education. Congratulations Derrick, we are proud of you!
