The International Code Council and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory have combined efforts to assess the code compliance of the permitting specifications for clean energy technologies and battery storage systems for integration into the Solar Automated Permit Processing Platform, also known as SolarAPP+.

Jeff Cook, Renewable Energy Policy and Market Analyst with the NREL’s Strategic Energy Analysis Center, and Laura Freidman, Project Manager, SolarAPP+ Initiative with the Code Council are here today to discuss how this collaboration will continue to improve the use of SolarAPP+ with local governments that use the model codes developed by the Code Council.

Jeff and Laura joined us to discuss the mission of SolarAPP+ and how the long-term vision will expand to commercial and multi-family builds.
