1. Energy (renewable/non-renewable), 3. Energy demand
12 February 2014
This module establishes a process for quantifying on-site GHG emission reductions from energy efficiency measures and renewable energy implemented across a college or university campus. This module applies to projects targeting campus-wide emission reductions on existing college and university campuses in the United States (but does not apply to K-12 schools). Campuses may implement project activities that reduce scope 1 stationary combustion emissions and/or scope 2 electricity emissions. Campuses must meet the relevant additionality performance benchmark by applying a series of additionality benchmark tests. Emission reductions are quantified based on data from third-party GHG reporting programs (eg, ACUPCC, STARS and The Climate Registry) for each year relative to a three to five year adjusted baseline.
This module is associated with the VM0025 Campus Clean Energy Efficiency Methodology.
