Review of the Commercial Provisions of the 2021 OEESC for Mechanical Engineers

SEPTEMBER 29, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • This event has passed.

Energy Trust and NEEA invite you to a live webinar training on mechanical aspects of the 2021 Oregon Energy Efficiency Specialty Code (OEESC). The first hour will feature an overview of general compliance and submission requirements, including Oregon’s Simplified Building Method for mechanical systems. The last 30 minutes will be dedicated to Q&A, where you can ask experts your energy code questions.

The training will cover several COMcheck basics to demonstrate mechanical and service water heating system compliance, as well as plan requirements and specific code provisions impacting mechanical design. The training will also detail beyond-code program requirements that tie into Energy Trust’s New Buildings program incentives to reduce energy use.
