Shaunna Mozingo lives and breathes energy codes
Colorado Energy Codes Collaborative and Regional Codes Leadership Group member receives one of the nation’s top awards for advancing energy codes
For her relentless, innovative, dedicated and passionate work on energy codes and energy efficiency in the built environment, Shaunna Mozingo of Colorado Code Consulting received the 2017 Jeffrey A. Johnson Award for Excellence in the Advancement of Energy Codes — one of the nation’s top awards for advancing energy codes — during the National Energy Codes Conference.
Known, admired and respected by many building officials in the southwest, Mozingo is a member of the Colorado Energy Codes Collaborative and Regional Codes Leadership Group, an ICC member, and a Colorado Chapter Past President. She worked with the International Code Council on a joint ICC/Colorado Code Consulting contract with the Colorado Energy Office and Department of Local Affairs to create an adoption toolkit for the International Energy Conservation Code.
Mozingo has traversed every corner of Colorado and the surrounding states, meeting with many hundreds of building officials and staff, learning their concerns and challenges, and offering them unique and tailored ideas and solutions to boost energy code compliance and support local adoptions. She uses the results of these meetings and relationships and her deep knowledge of the energy code to develop resources, design tools, conduct analyses, hold trainings and workshops, and cultivate new ideas that are then adapted across the country — while continually evolving her work and strategies to meet current needs.
Not afraid to tackle issues head-on with new approaches that haven’t been tried, and always seeking out people on all sides of an issue, she has single-handedly moved the needle on energy code advancement on all fronts — compliance, adoption and development. She provides training resources to building officials, builders, architects, engineering firms and efficiency professionals to boost compliance rates and buy-in; she is regularly invited by local jurisdictions to facilitate and advise local code adoption processes; and she is active in code development hearings, including bringing multi-perspective stakeholders together to discuss and agree on proposals.
Shaunna Mozingo lives and breathes energy codes, and we are all fortunate that she dedicates her talents, time, energy, commitment, knowledge and passion to them. Congratulations to Shaunna for this well-deserved honor!
