Minnesota is adopting the 2019 ASHRAE 90.1 Standard as the model for the 2024 Minnesota Commercial Energy Code, effective as of January 5, 2024.  The course will highlight changes between the current energy code and the new energy code.  In addition, the Minnesota State Legislature passed bills for rulemaking that will affect the Minnesota State Building Code and the course will review changes to the building code and new requirements.  Rule changes include requirements for electric vehicle charging facilities, modifications to window cleaning safety requirements, and the addition of requirements for adult-sized changing facilities in some occupancy classifications.
