JM's Danielle Ashley Appointed to International Council to Help Lead Energy Code Development

The International Code Council, the developer of the most widely used and highly regarded set of building safety codes and standards in the world, last month named JM’s Danielle Ashley as a committee member for the development of its 2024 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).

Ashley is a Research Associate in Insulation Systems (IS). She has technical responsibility for the fiberglass batts and rolls portfolio. 

“Danielle’s appointment to this international committee is a significant achievement for her and JM,” said Greg Clarke, President Insulation Systems. “The committee will be creating rules aimed at helping communities meet their energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction priorities.” 

Ashley is one of only four people representing manufacturers, and the only insulation manufacturer, appointed by the Code Council Board of Directors to the Commercial Energy Code Consensus Committee. The remainder of the committee is comprised of government regulators (15), public segment (8), consumer (4), user (7), utility (2), standards promulgator/testing laboratory (2) and builder (3), for a total of 45 members. Another 48 people were appointed to the Residential Energy Code Consensus Committee. According to ICC, there was an unprecedented field of 350 applicants. 

In her job at JM, Ashley leads development projects from the R&D phase to manufacturing and commercialization. She also provides technical support for the fiberglass product lines, and she collaborates with product management, operations and business teams to provide strategic direction for the Building Insulation business. 

Ashley is currently the Chair of the ASTM C16 Thermal Insulation, C16.31 Subcommittee and previously served the subcommittee as the secretary. Ashley also serves as a voting member for the C16.23 Blanket and Loose Fill Insulation subcommittee and North American Insulation Manufacturer’s Association.
