The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center are excited to announce that a new, modernized DSIRE is under construction. The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in December 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new version of DSIRE but are also maintaining the content of the current version of DSIRE. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this transition. We hope you are as excited for December as we are!

Incentives/Policies for Renewables & Efficiency

Printable Version
Building Energy Code   

Last DSIRE Review: 08/21/2014
Program Overview:
State: Kansas

Eligible Efficiency Technologies:
Applicable Sectors: Commercial, Residential
Residential Code:Kansas has no statewide code for residential structures, but over 50% of the State’s current residential construction occurs in jurisdictions that have adopted either the 2009 or 2012 version of the IECC. For new residential construction, the State requires realtors and homebuilders to fill out an energy efficiency disclosure form and provide it to potential buyers.

Much of the information presented in this summary is drawn from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Building Energy Codes Program and the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP). For more detailed information about building energy codes, visit the DOE and BCAP websites.

Kansas adopted the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) as "the applicable state standard" for commercial and industrial buildings. Enforcement is provided by local jurisdictions; the state corporation commission has no authority to adopt or enforce energy efficiency standards for residential, commercial, or industrial structures. Many of Kansas’s larger jurisdictions have adopted either the 2009 or 2012 IECC 2009 or 2012.

As part of its ongoing monitoring of energy codes adoption across Kansas, the Energy Division annually surveys selected cities and counties. The results of the 2013 survey are summarized in the Kansas Building Codes Summary-2013.

Kansas also requires the disclosure of specific energy-efficiency information on all new homes, using the Kansas Energy Efficiency Disclosure form (see KSA 66-1228). Homebuilders and/or realtors must provide this information to all potential buyers.
