Effective Use of Third-Party Inspectors for Enforcing the Building Energy Code21 April 2010
This 2009 white paper from the US State of Maine's Uniform Building and Energy Code entitled the Effective Use of Third Party Inspectors for Enforcing the Building Energy Code explains how the energy efficiency of buildings could be improved.
Improving the green credentials of buildings has become a hot topic in recent years and is vital as part of an overall environmental policy.
This study pushes Maine to become the final north-western state to sign up to the International Energy Conservation Code by June 2010. Its primary focus is on how non-governmental personnel can be used to ensure buildings are kept up to the standards required under any new law and uses Fairfax County in Virginia as an example for successful implementation of this scheme.
