David Hepinstall receives 2014 ACI Leadership Award in Detroit
The 2014 ACI Leadership Award was presented to David Hepinstall, executive director of the Association for Energy Affordability, at the Affordable Comfort National Home Performance Conference this week in Detroit.
According to the ACI website, “The ACI Leadership Award celebrates visionary leaders doing extraordinary work to strengthen the home performance industry. This award showcases individual excellence in leadership as demonstrated by outstanding initiative, impact of work, and inspiration to others.”
David is widely known through his tireless advocacy for Weatherization and multifamily energy efficiency programs, AEA’s Multifamily Buildings conference series, and his efforts to strengthen the industry through education, accreditation, and other initiatives. AEA’s demonstrated technical excellence has led to requests for technical support and training from many states, and eventually led to publication of our Multifamily Weatherization Resource Guide and the creation of our distance learning network.
He is nationally known for his leadership role with the Building Performance Institute (BPI). He served as one of the earliest technical advisers in the 1990s and has been an officer of the BPI Board of Directors continuously for over 10 years, first as Treasurer and most recently as Board Chair. An early BPI affiliate, AEA was the first organization to develop and teach curriculum for its multifamily building analyst and related heating certifications, and has contributed its technical expertise to a variety of BPI undertakings.
