2022 CABEC CONFERENCE
March 17-19, 2022 | Temecula Creek Inn, Temecula, CA
About the Conference
The Energy Code, Title 24 Part 6, has evolved to become one of most prominent requirements impacting a buildings design. Given the stringency of the building energy efficiency standards, the CABEC conference stands to support those providing energy code compliance services to help their clients meet compliance.
The CABEC conference is focused on integration of the different pieces of building science. Bringing together both conventional and modern design with technology that is involved with building energy modeling for compliance and beyond.
California is aggressively tackling Climate Action and reducing greenhouse gas emissions with transformative policy. Buildings account for 11% of GHG emissions of which the California Energy Commission has developed stringent energy code mandates to help significantly reduce emissions from
New Construction developments. The Building Energy Efficiency standards will help move the state to cleaner, affordable and less impactful buildings.

Will Vicent, CEM, LEED AP
Manager, Buildings Standards Office – California Energy Commission
Will is a proud member of the California Energy Commission, where he leads the Building Standards Office. Will is the friendliest and least knowledgeable member of an all-star team who are responsible for maintaining and updating California’s nation-leading Energy Code, its companion energy compliance software, and outreach & education programs. He has dedicated his career to reimagining our built environment into one that is more inspired, more ecologically intelligent, and more equitably distributed. In 2011, he founded a small building science consulting firm called Between Built & Natural Environments to help clients identify, evaluate and install cost-effective sustainable building solutions. Throughout his career he has worked collaboratively with nationally recognized design firms, builders, developers, research entities and investor-owned utilities – and has been instrumental in bringing to life verified zero carbon buildings in both the residential and commercial building sectors. Will has accepted invitations to speak on topics in building science at Greenbuild, ASHRAE, AEE, CABEC, IBPSA, the White House and many universities.
