Summary

Much of the information presented in this summary is drawn from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program and the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP). For more detailed information about building energy codes, visit the DOE and BCAP websites.

In September 2011, the Nebraska Legislature put LB 329 into effect, updating the Nebraska Building Energy Code to the 2009 IECC standards. As with the previous 2003 IECC standards, which had been in place since 2005, the Code applies to all new buildings, renovations, or additions to existing buildings. However, only those renovations that will cost more than 50 percent of the replacement cost of the building must comply with the Code. The Nebraska Energy Code also includes new and renovated state buildings within the 2009 IECC standard.

Cities and counties may adopt codes that differ from the Nebraska Energy Code, however, state law requires the adopted code to be at least equivalent to the Nebraska Energy Code.
