National Building Regulations the Topic of 19 plays a major role in reducing energy consumption. Therefore, identifying the effective factors on it can be useful in energy management. The purpose of this research is to identify the national building regulations of Section 19 and its determinant factors using the Structural Interpretative Equation Model. This method is a part of the system analysis methods that examines the interactions between elements of the system. In order to achieve the research goal, two methods of documentation (with the study of the background and theoretical foundations of the research). Field-Survey has been used. Considering that this method is based on the opinion of the experts, 15 expert opinions and supervisor of sports facilities were used to validate ISM interpretive modeling. After analyzing the data and components affecting energy management, they were placed on four levels, based on which the ISM graph was designed. After MICMAC analysis, the components depend on the strength of the influence and dependence categorized on three levels, independent level (insulation of cold and hot pipes), dependent level (autonomous shell insulation) and autonomous (flood gates and openings, equipment and lighting system management, Mechanical facility management, training supervisory program, and staffing assignment). Insulation of hot and cold water pipes has the greatest impact on the implementation of Topic 19 in sports complex.
