Is it possible for a campus, community, or other major facility to become climate neutral? What areas of climate impact should the facility focus on to have the greatest impact? Find guidance on these questions with an online tool available from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The Climate Action Planning Tool (CAPT) allows the user to input the components of a greenhouse gas inventory for a campus, community, or a single building.
During this I2SL High-Tech Talk webinar, participants learned:
- How to find the areas of major climate impact for a specific campus
- An overview of the various climate actions that can be selected in the CAPT
- How to compare the baseline climate impact and the climate impact reductions based on implementing various measures
- How to use the Climate Neutral Research Campus website tools to develop and implement a climate action plan
