Illinois Energy Conservation Code for Commercial Buildings
Public Act 093-0936 (Illinois Energy Conservation Code for Commercial Buildings) was signed into law in August, 2004 by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. The Illinois Energy Conservation Code for Commercial Buildings became effective April 8, 2006. This new Law requires all new commercial construction for which a building permit application is received by a municipality or county to follow a comprehensive statewide energy conservation code. Renovations, alterations, additions, and repairs to most existing commercial buildings must follow the Illinois Energy Conservation Code. Local governments are also free to adopt stricter energy conservation Laws. The Law requires design and construction professionals to follow the 2000 International Energy Conservation Code as amended by the 2001 supplement and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standard 90.1, 1999 "Energy Standard for Buildings except Low-Rise Residential Buildings." Under the law, the Capital Development Board has the power to modify the Illinois Energy Conservation Code. This portion of the IL DCEO web site provides a link to the text of the legislation, an overview of what the law requires and its goals, links to online training information related to this code, and contacts for further information.
