Navigant helped the City of Madison, Wisconsin, develop strategies and analysis to achieve its energy and emissions goals
In 2017, Madison, Wisconsin, set a goal of achieving 100% renewable energy and zero net carbon emissions. To deliver on its plan, the city engaged Navigant to develop strategies and an analysis that would steer them toward the future.
For Madison, Navigant identified demand-side and supply-side options for facilities, operations, and transportation, and worked to engage stakeholders — including local investor-owned utilities, the business community, and nonprofit organizations — online and through public meetings.
“This effort was in line with the city’s goal of a sustainable leadership role for the larger community, and to illustrate that leadership around US and global cities,” said Noah Goldstein, director at Navigant.
Navigant also developed three timelines for the city to reach its goals. These timelines were supported by financial and environmental analyses to compare costs and the impacts of demand-side and supply-side options.
Navigant's analysis and recommendations are detailed in a report recently released by the city.
