Duane Jonlin is the "Energy Code and Energy Conservation Advisor" for Seattle, and has been appointed by two governors to lead energy code development for the Washington State Building Code Council. Nationally, he serves on the Commercial Energy Code committee for ICC and is a voting member of the ASHRAE 90.1 committee. Prior to taking his position at the City of Seattle, Jonlin had 30 years' experience as a technical architect for commercial and institutional projects. In 2016, he was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in recognition of his impact on energy efficiency.

His work on policy, standards, and masterplans has won numerous international awards and last year he was recognized by the NRDC as one of 9 global leaders fighting climate change in cities. He has recently led the development of high performance building standards for the District of Columbia, The City of Vancouver and the state of California that are all targeting net zero emissions strategies. Dave has also worked on energy policy issues with multiple US Cites and the US Department of Energy, and is a technical advisor to the Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities Initiative. 

Lorne's practical experience combined with his theoretical training and proficiency with state-of-the-art thermal and hygrothermal (heat, air, and moisture) software modeling tools allows him to analyze and design durable, energy efficient building enclosures. By combining his building science knowledge and previous project experience, he provides insightful design consulting and construction review of building enclosures for new buildings and retrofit work.
