This report is in response to the letter dated October 4, 2012, from the Energy and Green Advisory Board (EGAB) of the NCTCOG to the Energy Systems Laboratory. In this letter, the EGAB requested the Laboratory to perform a stringency analysis of the amendments proposed by the EGAB to the 2012 IECC when compared to a corresponding 2012 IECC code compliant base-case house. An analysis comparing the proposed amendments to the current TBEPS (2009 IECC / 2009 IRC) was also requested. A total of ten amendments were proposed to various sections of the 2012 IECC. Three of the proposed amendments required performance path analysis. The ESL provided a response to EGAB request on October 31, 2012 with a summary of ESL's stringency analysis of all ten proposed amendments.
