Climate-Friendly Buildings: A New Construction Guide to Support Santa Monica’s Energy Reach Code
This guide supports compliance with the Santa Monica Energy Reach Code by providing guidance for meeting all of the Reach Code requirements, including All-Electric Design, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. It also includes additional material on Grid Integration, which is not required by the Reach Code, but which will become an increasingly important part of the decarbonization of buildings and the electrical grid. Finally, it includes a handful of case studies to help show what a zero-emissions building looks like.
