2015 Seattle Energy Code Development

Seattle DCI will hold a couple of public meetings during in February to review proposed changes to the “Commercial Buildings” provisions of the 2015 Seattle Energy Code. (The City does not amend the residential portion of the code.)

If you’re interested in attending one of these meetings, please RSVP to duane.jonlin@seattle.gov as space is limited. We’ll email meeting attendees the agenda and proposed code changes before each meeting. The meetings are:

  • Thursday, February 4
    10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
    Seattle Municipal Tower, Room 1600
    700 5th
  • Friday, February 12
    10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
    Seattle Municipal Tower, Room 1610
    700 5th


Seattle’s Climate Action Plan requires significant improvements in energy efficiency for both new construction and existing buildings, so ideas for cost-effective code changes that would reduce building energy use are encouraged.
