Harry Misuriello - Energy Code Champion
Harry Misuriello has invigorated the energy efficiency world for many years and personifies the role of Energy Code Champion.
Harry has been in the energy efficiency business for more than 35 years as a consulting firm executive and as an energy efficiency advocate. He can often be found running campaigns behind the scenes and lining up advocates and support materials. And of course, at a moment’s notice, Harry will step up to a microphone and deliver on-target pro-efficiency and pro-America comments. The improvements in energy codes today are in large part due to Harry’s persistence at national and state levels.
Harry is currently a Visiting Fellow at ACEEE, where he has served since 2008. At ACEEE, he consults with and advises ACEEE on strategies to increase the level of energy-efficient new residential and commercial construction nationally and regionally through development, adoption, and enforcement of building energy codes.
Prior to consulting with ACEEE, Harry was Manager of Energy Efficiency Strategies at Owens Corning. He also served as Director of Buildings and Utility Programs and Director of National Programs at the Alliance to Save Energy. He led the Alliance’s efforts in the areas of building energy codes, appliance and equipment standards, efficient windows, and utility demand-side management programs. Harry has also served as chairman of the Responsible Energy Codes Alliance.
He serves as a voting member of the ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Committee, and has served on the ASHRAE technical committees that produced the Advanced Energy Design Guides for small office and small retail buildings. He was also instrumental in development of ASHRAE’s building energy labeling program. His international consulting experience includes engagements in the Peoples' Republic of China, Hungary, and Poland, and assisting USAID to establish energy conservation.
