Energy Standards for Public Buildings
West Virginia Department of Administration

In March 2012, West Virginia enacted the Green Buildings Act, which applies to all new construction of public buildings, buildings receiving state grant funds, and buildings receiving state appropriations. For those buildings that have not entered the schematic design phase prior to July 1, 2012, buildings must be designed and construction to comply with the ICC International Energy Conservation Code, and the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007. If a building is also receiving federal funds, the ICC and ASHRAE standards only apply if the are consistent with federal standards.
