Coalition for Fair Energy Codes

The Coalition for Fair Energy Codes (CFEC) is an unincorporated group of wood industry companies and associations established to advance the fair and impartial treatment of all building products in energy codes and standards.

CFEC supports technically credible and cost-effective energy conservation; the use of the best available building science and technical data in support of the code development process; and construction industry options and alternatives that will make the energy code more flexible, enforceable, and effective.

Energy Codes that Work!

CFEC recognizes that the 2012 and 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) versions have met significant resistance as states have considered updating their codes.  Many states have delayed updating their energy codes while some have completely bypassed both the 2012 and 2015 IECC.  

An energy code that is not adopted or enforced contributes nothing toward our nation's energy independence.

CFEC supports the development of a 2018 IECC that contributes to energy efficiency through widespread code adoption and enforcement.  To that end, CFEC supports code change proposals that will restore flexibility and increase options for achieving energy efficient buildings and opposes proposals that mandate specific product types and introduce needless complexity to the IECC.
