InfoTrends,Calculating Your Emissions Factor - It's All Local


New study from InfoTrends:

Average energy usage (kWh) * EF (lbs CO2/kWh) = Carbon Output (lbs CO2)

Huh?

From the summary:

"...Office equipment in Delaware creates 400 times as much carbon output as it does in Vermont..."

"Carbon dioxide emission factors (EFs) provide a localized translation from energy usage, often in kilowatt-hours (kWh), to equivalent pounds of carbon output (lbs CO2).For energy-consuming office equipment devices, the proper EF represents the indirect public electricity EF..."



Interesting...
