Energy and Green Building

To assist in the permitting and inspection process, the Energy Verification Worksheet and Green & Energy Compliance System (GECS) have been replaced. An interactive workbook for the 2013 and 2017 DC Energy and Green Construction Codes has been created. The Energy and Green Worksheets workbook is unique to your project and, unlike prior forms, eliminates the requirement to create a pdf of the Energy Verification Sheets (EVS) for project review,

Using the Energy and Green Worksheets Workbook

  • The Energy and Green Worksheets workbook can be found here.
  • Once you select the link you will be prompted to make a copy of the workbook for your current project.
  • With each new project, visit this site and make a copy of the workbook to ensure that you are working with the most recent version.
  • In the workbook, instructions for its use are included on the Introduction Tab under, “How to use this document.” There are additional instructions on each of the required tabs.
