We are pleased to announce the addition of Eric Makela to our Codes and Policy team. He brings over 30 years of global expertise in energy code development, training and evaluation, throughout the United States as well as abroad, including Abu Dhabi, Fiji, and Bahrain. Prior to joining us at NBI, Eric was the lead for the Codes and Standards team at Cadmus Group, where he managed energy, code development and implementation, as well as program evaluation. As a Senior Research Scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Lab, Eric had many accomplishments including a collaboration with NBI and AIA to win a 25+% increase in the 2012 Commercial IECC.
The addition of Eric to NBI’s team strengthens our ability to work with organizations and leading jurisdictions across the country, and beyond. Eric’s technical expertise will be a critical component for helping jurisdictions of all types meet energy goals and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
