Title 24 is California’s Energy Commission’s energy efficiency standard. California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards are updated on an approximate three-year cycle. The 2013 Standards improve upon the 2008 Standards for new construction of, and additions and alterations to, residential and nonresidential buildings. The 2013 Standards went into effect July 1, 2014.
Because energy efficiency reduces energy costs, increases reliability and availability of electricity, improves building occupant comfort, and reduces impacts to the environment, standards are important and necessary for California’s energy future. In 1978 the California legislature enacted the Title 24 energy standards. The standards are contained within Title 24, part 6 of the California Code of Regulations.
