Executive Order 20-04

Energy efficiency goals for new construction

On March 10, 2020, the Governor issued Executive Order (EO) 20-04, with performance-based directives intended to build upon the ongoing prescriptive requirements of EO 17-20.

Energy efficiency goals for 2030

EO 20-04 requires the division, through its advisory boards, to adopt building energy efficiency goals for 2030, for new residential and commercial construction, representing a 60 percent reduction in new building annual site consumption of energy from the adopted 2006 Oregon codes.

Code progress and updates

EO 20-04 requires the division, through its advisory boards, to evaluate and report on Oregon's current progress toward achieving the goals for new residential and commercial buildings, and options for achieving that goal over the next three code cycles and then submit a report on the current progress every three years thereafter.

Oregon Reach Code

EO 20-04 requires the division, through its advisory boards, to adopt a reach code when the ORSC Chapter 11 and OSSC Chapter 13 energy provisions are updated. Follow the Oregon Reach Code adoption process.
