Alabama Energy Codes

​In March 2010, legislation was signed giving the Alabama Energy and Residential Codes (AERC) Board the authority to adopt mandatory residential and commercial energy codes for the entire state. It also gave the board the authority to adopt mandatory residential building codes for jurisdictions that had not implemented such a code prior to March 2010.

The board has adopted the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code for commercial buildings and the 2009 International Residential Code including the energy chapter for residential buildings, with selected modifications.  For the first time in Alabama’s history, the state has mandatory energy codes for all new construction and substantial renovation.

Implementation and enforcement of the adopted codes became mandatory on Oct. 1, 2012.

Building and Code Officials Database / Code Information Mailing List

The ADECA Energy Division and the Alabama Energy and Residential Codes Board are working to develop a database of all building and code officials in Alabama. Also, we are creating a mailing list for anyone interested in receiving notifications of Alabama Energy and Residential Code (AERC) Board meetings, code amendments, or other information related to the AERC.

Your information will not be made public or shared without your express consent, nor will you be added to any mailing lists without that same consent.
