QUINCY, MA — The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) have announced an agreement to partner on an energy code. The code will incorporate ASHRAE’s widely-used energy standards, Standard 90.1 and Standard 90.2, and become part of a full set of comprehensive codes developed by NFPA and its partners.

George D. Miller, NFPA president, said, “As a result of this agreement, state and local governments that adopt our codes set will have in place the latest advances in heating,

refrigeration, cooling, and lighting design, resulting in significant energy savings.”

The resulting Energy Code will incorporate the 2001 editions of the 90.1 and 90.2, and reflect any up-dates or addenda to those standards. The code will apply to all buildings, including low-rise residential structures.
