Attendees will learn about the requirements of the 2021 Oregon Energy Code, based on ASHRAE 90.1-2019. In addition, the webinar will cover:

  • Commercial provisions of the OEESC, including envelope, HVAC and electrical requirements for typical Oregon buildings

  • Comparison of changes from the last code cycle
  • Code compliance pathways
  • Additional resources
