2019 Title 24 Energy standards for low-rise residential projects: Overview, ADUs, and electrification
Description: The 2019 energy efficiency standards went into effect on January 1st, 2020. Both the market and codes have continued to change in the meantime, with a huge increase in ADU development, as well as many Bay Area municipalities adopting all-electric preferences or requirements. In this session, we’ll check in with these hot topics and compliance options and challenges.

Presenter: Luke Morton is HYA’s sustainability manager and graduated from Stanford University with a B.Sc. in Earth Systems and an M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering. During his studies, he worked for a number of building energy organizations. At the U.S. Green Building Council in Washington DC, he supported the creation of a carbon-based standard that will be incorporated into the LEED criteria. At the Rocky Mountain Institute in Boulder, CO, he worked on evaluating the effectiveness of Automated Demand Response Systems (“smart” thermostats). At Southface Energy Institute, in Atlanta, GA, Luke inspected over 500 new single-family houses as a HERS Rater for ENERGY STAR and EarthCraft House certifications. With Viron Energy Services in Oakland, CA, Luke led the energy audit of the entire Community College District of San Mateo, including College of San Mateo, Cañada College, and Skyline College. In his free time, Luke enjoys baking deserts in his solar oven for company lunches, playing ukulele in a local bluegrass band and giving lectures on building science to hapless Stanford undergrads. He is now a father too!
