Carbon footprinting: A classroom exercise

Abstract

This document outlines a carbon footprinting methodology that can be conducted by graduate or undergraduate students as a classroom exercise. A class of graduate students at Arizona State University in the College of Design and School of Sustainability used a methodology to determine the carbon footprint of three campus buildings. This methodology included an energy consumption analysis of the existing building, the creation of an as-built energy model, and the study of carbon footprint improvement scenarios with the ultimate goal of achieving carbon neutrality. Each improvement scenario was analyzed to determine its effect on the annual electric consumption, annual gas consumption, and overall carbon footprint.
