June 5, 2014: Building Codes Assistance Project to Become Independent Organization

BCAP Is a Resource for Information Related to Energy Code Development, Adoption, and Compliance

WASHINGTON — The Alliance to Save Energy (ASE) and the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) have jointly announced that BCAP will transition from its status as a program of ASE and become an independent organization.

“The BCAP team and our many partners are enormously grateful for the 20 years of stewardship provided by the Alliance, and for the encouragement they are giving us as we leave the nest,” said Maureen Guttman, executive director, BCAP. “There are exciting opportunities for collaboration with the Alliance that we are committed to pursuing, even as we explore new areas of growth for BCAP.”

BCAP provides education and technical support for energy code adoption proceedings, promotes collaboration among stakeholders to achieve action at the state level, and addresses common barriers to compliance through the development of programs and tools.

“BCAP started in 1994 as a joint project of the Alliance, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy,” said Kateri Callahan, president, ASE. “Today, BCAP is a nationally known and highly regarded resource for all information related to energy code development, adoption, and compliance. We are proud to recognize the breadth of BCAP’s influence and the depth of expertise of its staff, which position it well to flourish as an independent organization.”

BCAP’s independence also furthers a key, strategic recommendation of ASE’s board of directors to move away from programmatic work and toward a greater focus on national policy advocacy. BCAP will remain located in ASE’s offices for the time being.
