The Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a notice of final determination requiring U.S. states to file certification statements with DOE by May 17 indicating their residential energy codes meet or exceed the requirements of the International Energy Conservation Code,® 2012 Edition (IECC 2012). Previous similar determinations have prompted states to update their energy codes.
