Description

Overview of the Commercial Provisions of the 2019 Oregon Commercial Energy Code (OCEC)

Energy Trust and NEEA invite you to join us for a training on the 2019/2020 code changes on November 7, at the Mercy Corps building in Portland. This half-day event will feature four one-hour modules. We encourage members of the building, design and code compliance industry to attend one or all the sessions based on interest.

Scheduled Training Sessions

Commercial Mechanical Provisions of the OCEC (9–10 a.m.):

Learn about the HVAC requirements for typical Oregon buildings and provisions that significantly impact energy use, as we compare the current 2014 OEESPC and the 2019 OCEC.

Building Envelope Requirements of the OCEC (10–11 a.m.):

Get to know the building envelope provisions of the OCEC, including the updated building envelope R-value/U-factor requirements, continuous air barrier requirements and other significant changes from the current OEESPC.

Lighting System Requirements of the OCEC (12–1 p.m.):

Familiarize yourself with the new lighting power density requirements, the new lighting control requirements and how to determine what controls apply to what spaces.

Scope and Application of 2019 OCEC to New and Existing Buildings (1–2 p.m.):

Learn how the commercial provisions of the OCEC apply to new and existing buildings. This is important for code implementation and ultimately achieving energy savings. We’ll also talk about exemptions that apply for new construction, and how the OCEC applies to additions, alterations and repairs.

About the presenters:

Eric Makela is an associate director at New Buildings Institute with 30 years of experience in building energy codes and policy. Eric served on the ICC IECC Code Development Committee for four cycles, and now represents the Northwest Energy Codes Group in developing IECC code change proposals. He previously worked as a senior member of the U.S. DOE Building Energy Codes Program, where he focused on outreach and education to states and national stakeholders.

Over his career, Eric has trained the building, design and enforcement industry in over 20 states and a variety of venues. He was a recipient of the 2009 Jeffrey A. Johnson Award and the 2008 Canyon County Habitat for Humanity Volunteer of the Year. He has a B.A. in environmental studies from Sonoma State University and an M.A. in education from California State University, Sacramento.


Blake Shelide serves as a facilities engineer with the Oregon Department of Energy, providing technical expertise for a number of ODOE programs. Blake is a licensed mechanical engineer in Oregon, and his career has included work as a design engineer and consultant as well as serving as a corporate energy manager for a large industrial manufacturer which involved engineering and implementing energy efficiency projects, tracking energy consumption, and performing energy audits. With ODOE, Blake is the lead for ODOE’s role with energy codes and standards and serves on the Construction Industry Energy Board, working together with stakeholders and the Building Codes Division on energy code issues. Blake is currently involved as the facilitator for the state Built Environment Efficiency Working Group, a collaboration of state agencies working to implement Governor Brown’s Executive Order 17-20 for Accelerating Efficiency in Oregon’s Built Environment. Blake works with state agencies and schools to assist with energy efficiency for new facility design and retrofits and to track and reduce energy consumption. Blake has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Notre Dame.


AIA and CCB continuing education credits are available for self-reporting: 1 credit per session or 4 credits for a full day.
