Cool-Roof Rating Council Names Vice Chairman

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Comment | More

The Cool Roofing Rating Council (CRRC) announced the election of James Baker, director of industry affairs for the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA), as council vice chairman.

Baker has been an active participant in CRRC, which was created in 1998 to develop methods for evaluating and labeling the solar reflectance and thermal emittance (radiative properties) of roofing products, and to disseminate the information to all interested parties. The council said its mission includes the implementation and communication of “fair, accurate, and credible radiative energy performance rating systems and to support research and provide education related to radiative properties of roofing surfaces.”

The CRRC said Baker’s work in association management and with building products, technical services, and manufacturing industries gives him an extensive technical background in the areas of energy efficiency, climate change, and regulatory-policy development.

“Baker’s familiarity with code issues and market positions also allows him to be aware of the multiple perspectives involving materials from coatings and single plies to metal and tiles, and the resulting need for a balanced and measured approach when addressing the needs of these various products,” the council said in announcing the appointment.

Baker said CRRC “has the ability to support cool roofing standards in both the U.S. and internationally by providing technically sound data to government and non-government entities, and by educating product end-users, manufacturers, architects, engineers, and specifiers about the benefits of applying cool-roofing products when appropriate.”
