Outcome-based energy codes are relatively new. They incorporate strategies that quantify a building’s actual energy performance over time to demonstrate code compliance. The term "outcome-based" refers to the fact that compliance is linked with a building’s actual energy “outcome” which may be measured post-occupancy.
