MMPA principal Tom Phoenix presented at the 2017 ASHRAE Conference in Las Vegas, NV last week.

His topic covered ASHRAE’s Advocacy in the Residential Market, and how the Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee educates local, state, provincial, and national government bodies and officials in areas of interest to ASHRAE members, and is targeted toward sound government policies for sustainable practices and reduced carbon emissions associated with the HVAC equipment and systems in the building sector.

He described ongoing and planned efforts by the committee to obtain and disseminate key residential sector information to government agencies. This included a series of Public Policy Issue Briefs intended for distribution to government officials and others with limited technical expertise, but who would benefit from information regarding ASHRAE and its activities.
