Energy Verification Sheets
An Energy Verification Worksheet (EVS) is submitted in the official plan set when applying for a building permit. The EVS provides a transparent and consistent method of communication between the designers, code reviewers, and inspectors to show compliance with the DC Energy Conservation Code. By adhering to this guideline project teams will reduce permit reviewer questions and speed up the "energy review" and/or "green review" process.
The following construction types must include an EVS in their plans.
- Residential projects that are either (1) new construction, (2) addition or (3) level 3 alteration
- Commercial projects that are either (1) new construction, (2) addition or (3) level 2 or 3 alteration
