The ASHRAE Community’s Role in Dane County’s Climate Action Plan

Transformational change is coming – What role can you play in your professional capacity to help our community co-create a healthier, more prosperous future?

In April 2020 Dane County issued an ambitious and comprehensive economy-wide climate action plan (CAP). The CAP lays out strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sources by 50% by 2030 with the ultimate aim of net zero emissions by 2050.

Joe Parisi, Dane County Executive, Kathy Kuntz, Acting Director of the Dane County Office of Energy & Climate Change and Scott Hackel, Director of Research and Innovation at Slipstream, will talk about the CAP and its implications for ASHRAE members working in Dane County.

Learning objectives for this session are:

  1. Attendees will be able to list the key climate change trends already confronting Dane County and be able to identify at least three ways the design community can address those trends.
  2. Attendees will become familiar with deep decarbonization as a climate action strategy and learn how it applies to emissions in Dane County.
  3. Attendees will be able to identify at least five actionable strategies for low emission homes and buildings that they can apply to their work.
  4. Attendees will become familiar with at least four programs or resources that will support their efforts in realizing low-emission buildings.


In addition to learning about the County’s climate action efforts and the opportunities for the ASHRAE community in that effort, the session will include time for questions and comments.


Madison ASHRAE holiday party and Fundraiser for ASHRAE Research Projects

Whether you’re celebrating the Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas or one of the many other December festivals, stick around after the main presentation for games and prizes, and a chance to meet other members of our chapter. Please dress up in a holiday-themed outfit and have your camera on for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

Although the meeting is free to attend, we encourage you to make a $15 or more donation to the society to fund research projects.  We've recruited a few vendors to sponsor some prizes, so we'll have a drawing for some door prizes in addition to the costume awards. A contribution to RP is encouraged, but not required. You must be present on the zoom call in order to win a prize.

We’ll wrap up organized activities by 5:30, but anyone who would like to stick around for further networking or conversation is welcome to stay on until 6.
