Biography

Todd Taylor has conducted analysis and directed development efforts for building energy codes and standards, influencing the International Energy Conservation Code, ASHRAE Standard 90.2, the Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards, standards for federal residences, regional codes in the Pacific Northwest, and other residential energy standards and efficiency programs. Specializing in largescale building simulation, economic analysis, and large-scale metering and analysis of buildings and utility grids, Todd has authored or co-authored several of the most significant IECC code changes to impact residential energy consumption over the last two decades. For more than 30 years, he has conducted analysis of metered buildings and electric utility grids, having most recently served as chief analyst for the Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Program.
