New CARICOM Regional Energy Efficiency Building Code (CREEBC)

The 2018 CARICOM Regional Energy Efficiency Building Code (CREEBC) was released by the International Code Council (ICC), ASHRAE, the CARICOM Secretariat Energy Unit and the CARICOM Regional Organisation for Standards and Quality (CROSQ). The CREEBC is meant to meet the specific needs of nations in the Caribbean and other countries with tropical climates. It establishes minimum energy efficiency requirements for buildings, including the building envelope, cooling system, ventilation, pumping, lighting and the service water-heating systems.The development of the CREEBC is part of the ongoing implementation of the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Roadmap and Strategy (C-SERMS), a CARICOM programme aimed at increasing political will and private sector input for the adoption of more effective technologies for renewable energy, energy conservation and efficiency. The CREEBC is available online at:
