  • Description

    Take the lead in building energy conservation and help maximize efficiency with NFPA 900, 2022 edition.

    It is increasingly critical that buildings meet consensus criteria and regulations for energy efficiency. NFPA 900, Building Energy Code, offers complete requirements for energy conservation in the built environment. The code incorporates the technical provisions of ASHRAE 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, and ASHRAE 90.2, Energy Efficient Design of Low-Rise Residential Buildings, to provide general provisions for building design, construction, and maintenance.

    First released in 2002, NFPA 900 answers the need for a stand-alone building energy code, complete with administrative procedures and appropriate annexes, table of contents, definitions, references, index, and other information developed through the NFPA® process. This ANSI-accredited document is your guide to manage energy use by improving conservation and reducing costs by complying with minimum energy-efficient requirements for the following:

    • Design, construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, demolition, removal, inspection, issuance and revocation of permits or licenses, and installation of equipment applicable to energy conservation in all buildings, structures, and related equipment
    • Energy efficiency in existing buildings under rehabilitation and maintenance of construction
    • Provisions for materials to be used in connection with activities specified in the code

    The 2022 edition of NFPA 900 features substantial revisions to keep you informed of the most current building codes.

    NFPA 900, Building Energy Code, is an essential resource for builders, designers, facility managers, testers, inspectors, and authorities having jurisdiction. The 2022 edition received a significant update to Annex B, Supplemental Administrative Provisions, that outlines the most recent changes extracted from NFPA 5000®, Building Construction and Safety Code®.  

    Help improve energy efficiency and better ensure buildings, structures, and equipment are code compliant.

    Stay at the forefront of energy conservation by upgrading to NFPA 900, Building Energy Code. Get the 2022 edition today. (Print, 24 pp., 2022)

    2019 Edition

    Take control of energy usage, maximize energy conservation, and save money using NFPA 900 alongside ASHRAE 90.1 and ASHRAE 90.2.

    ANSI-accredited NFPA® 900, Building Energy Code, addresses energy efficiency and energy conservation in all types of buildings, structures, and equipment.

    The 2019 edition of NFPA 900 references the technical provisions of ASHRAE 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, and ASHRAE 90.2, Energy Efficient Design of Low-Rise Residential Buildings, with the administrative provisions and appropriate annexes, table of contents, definitions, references, index, and other information developed through the NFPA process that create a usable and adoptable energy code.

    The latest NFPA 900 works with ASHRAE 90.1 and ASHRAE 90.2 to provide the minimum energy-efficient requirements for:

    • The design, construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, demolition, removal, inspection, issuance and revocation of permits or licenses, and installation of equipment related to energy conservation in all buildings and structures and parts thereof
    • The rehabilitation and maintenance of construction related to energy efficiency in existing buildings
    • The standards or requirements for materials to be used

    Keep energy conservation in focus using NFPA 900.

    The Code is an important resource for facility managers and code officials. (Print, 15 pp., 2019)


    2016 Edition

    NFPA 900, Building Energy Code brings energy conservation into focus for facility managers and code officials.

    The 2016 NFPA 900 is an ANSI-accredited code that addresses energy efficiency and energy conservation in all types of buildings, structures, and equipment. For example, it gives facility managers and code officials reliable guidance for evaluating the energy efficiency of:

    • Forced air heating, cooling, and ventilation systems
    • Exterior wall and roof insulating levels
    • Mechanical equipment such as air handlers and water heaters
    • Electrical equipment such as lighting and motors

    NFPA 900, Building Energy Code references the technical provisions of ASHRAE 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, and ASHRAE 90.2, Energy Efficient Design of Low-Rise Residential Buildings, with the administrative provisions and appropriate annexes, table of contents, definitions, references, index, and other information developed through the NFPA® process that create a usable and adoptable energy code.

    Together they include the minimum energy-efficient requirements for:

    • The design, construction, reconstruction, alteration, repair, demolition, removal, inspection, issuance and revocation of permits or licenses, and installation of equipment related to energy conservation in all buildings and structures and parts thereof
    • The rehabilitation and maintenance of construction related to energy efficiency in existing buildings
    • The standards or requirements for materials to be used

    Apply the 2016 NFPA 900 with ASHRAE 90.1 and ASHRAE 90.2 to take control of your building's energy usage to maximize energy conservation and save money. (Softbound, 22 pp., 2016)
