Code Breaker: Multifamily All Electric

July 27 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

1.0 LU/HSW


Hosted by AIA Los Angeles

(This program is a repeat of the AIA LBSB Codebreaker program presented on May 24, 2022)


The 2022 Energy Code has introduced significant changes for multifamily occupancies, from how these occupancies are to be classified and organized within the code to the introduction of new Mandatory and Prescriptive measures facilitating preparation for future multifamily all-electric buildings. Join us for this presentation where we review not only the all-electric preparation requirements of the Energy Code, but also PV exemptions. We will also explore preparation for future all-electric buildings in the Energy Code requirements for HVAC systems, domestic hot water and battery storage.

Learning objectives:

  • Cite the date when 2022 Energy Code requirements will go into effect
  • Describe how 2019 multifamily occupancy classifications have been reorganized in 2022 Energy Code along with their corresponding code sections
  • Discuss updates to 2022 Prescriptive HVAC and domestic hot water requirements related to preparation for future multifamily all-electric buildings
  • Recognize when solar photovoltaic and battery systems are required in multifamily buildings
  • Identify online resources for more guidance on these topics
