Meeting the needs of a thriving economy and expanding population
Increased urbanization and significant air quality challenges, mean that smart, efficient energy solutions are more important than ever.
By streamlining energy efficiency measures in new construction and implementing those measures in existing homes and buildings, we can improve quality of life through reduced emissions, better air quality and more affordable and reliable energy.

Additional Programs and Solutions
Building Talks: Utah’s Energy Code Training Program
In partnership with Dominion Energy and Rocky Mountain Power, we provide energy code education to builders, code officials and trades workers.
Intermountain Industrial Assessment Center
We partner with the Intermountain Industrial Assessment Center to provide no-cost energy consulting services to manufacturers in the Intermountain region — helping identify between 10 and 20 percent energy and productivity savings.
Voluntary Home Energy Information Pilot Program
In the March 2020 Legislative Session, Utah passed H.B. 235 — Voluntary Home Energy Information Pilot Program.
This legislation directs OED to design a pilot program that encourages energy efficiency in residential homes through education and a comprehensive, transparent and understandable home energy scorecard that evaluates and compares a home’s energy performance to other similar homes.
As part of this bill, we are creating the Home Energy Information Advisory Committee that will help develop rules and a scoring system for the pilot program.
