2023 Code Breaker: Single-family All Electric & Zero Net Carbon Design

This is a free zoom presentation > information to access the zoom will be emailed to registrants 24 hours before the event.   If you don’t receive an email please reach out to marc@aialosangeles.org!

The 2022 Energy Code marks significant changes for Residential occupancies, including new Mandatory and Prescriptive measures that pave the way for future single-family all- electric residences and zero net carbon design (ZNCD). Join us for this one-hour presentation where we review the all-electric preparation requirements of the Energy Code (Title 24, Part 6, the California Building Energy Efficiency Standards), associated solar photovoltaic (PV) exemptions, requirements for heat pump space heating and domestic hot water, and battery-ready electrical panel configuration, as well as how all- electric homes relate to ZNCD.

Approved Learning Objectives – AIA CES: 1 LU|HSW

+ Describe how Residential occupancy classifications have been reorganized in 2022 Energy Code.

+ Discuss updates to the 2022 Energy Code that set the stage for future all electric single-family residences, including Prescriptive requirements involving heat pump space heating and domestic hot water.

+ Recognize when solar photovoltaic and battery systems are required in single-family homes.

+ Explain how “all electric” is a necessary, but not necessarily sufficient, requirement for achieving zero net carbon design (ZNCD)

+ Given examples of alternative design options for a single-family home, identify which, if any, of the options achieve ZNCD.

+ Identify online resources for more guidance on these topics
