The CEC encourages the use of energy saving techniques and designs for showing compliance with the Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code) that are approved by the CEC through the compliance options approval process. Compliance options can affect the Energy Code in several ways but can generally be viewed as:

  1. Those that affect a change in compliance through a change in the scope of the requirements, and
  2. Those that affect change in the compliance through enhancement of the current compliance process
