Building Codes Assistance Program

Building Codes Assistance Program BCAP is dedicated to the adoption, implementation and advancement of building energy codes.
The Building Codes Assistance Program (BCAP) was founded in 1994 as a joint initiative of the Alliance to Save Energy, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. BCAP is housed within the Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS) Energy, Sustainability and Resiliency division.

BCAP provides custom-tailored assistance on building energy code adoption and implementation. We assist state and local regulatory and legislative bodies and help coordinate others representing industry, consumers, labor, and environmental interests. BCAP provides states with code adoption support on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and coordinates with DOE technical assistance (see energycodes.gov for more information). BCAP receives additional funding from private foundations, and works with states as a part of State Energy Program (SEP) grant projects. BCAP collaborates with regional energy efficiency organizations, state energy offices, environmental groups, industry, utilities, and other entities to form and sustain strong relationships and facilitate coordination on mutual goals.

Mission: The Building Codes Assistance Program strives to be the premier resource for energy code support, coordination, technical assistance, news and information. Our mission is to reduce the energy consumed in the construction and operations of buildings by working with national, state, and local governments and other stakeholders to promote the adoption and implementation of building codes and standards.
