What is an energy code anyway? Policymakers hold the key to better buildings in Kansas City

March 3, 2022 @ 11:30 am 12:30 pm CST


During the cold snap in 2021 and record-breaking temperatures this past summer, communities across the Kansas City area continue to experience firsthand the detrimental impacts of living in inefficient homes. Luckily, there are model building codes to guide prudent action — roadmaps for new construction and updating existing buildings. Included in the suite of building codes is the life-safety energy code.

You may be wondering what exactly is an energy code, what code your municipality has adopted, and why are these people telling me it’s so important? Join Metropolitan Energy Center (MEC) on Thursday, March 3 at 11:30am as we simplify the code and discuss how it can ensure your residents have healthy, safe, and affordable places to work, play, and call home.  

This event is for policymakers in the Kansas City region including, but not limited to, City Council Members, Mayors, City Managers, and Directors and staff of applicable departments (Planning & Development, Health, etc.).
