The Midwest ASHP Collaborative was formed in 2022 to accelerate ASHP adoption across 13 states in the region. The Collaborative focuses on providing industry resources through engagement with local market partners to address needs and overcome barriers to adoption. The Collaborative is delivered by four Midwestern non-profits and is proud to partner with the Iowa Waste Reduction Center to deliver this event in Des Moines.
