The California Energy Commission has delayed the implementation of the 2013 Standards until 7/1/14. This will be a major code upgrade to the Energy Efficiency Standards [Title 24]. California has goals of reaching net zero energy by 2020 for Residential construction, and 2030 for Nonresidential construction. These are the largest reductions mandated by any code iteration do date. The changes will disrupt current architectural and engineering practice, and will create an enforcement nightmare.
