To move towards a zero emissions city and reduce environmental and economic harms associated with excessive energy use.
Estimate the annual energy consumption and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions for the city. The projected energy performance must meet the following criteria: Include Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions in the calculations. Address all of the following sectors present within the city:
- Buildings – All types of buildings such as residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings under public and private sector.
- Transportation – Public and private transportation.
- Street lighting and public area lighting.
- Water and wastewater.
- Waste management.
- Any other sector such as energy generation, mining or extraction if it falls within the city boundary.
- Use U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regional grid mix coefficients to calculate GHG emissions by energy source; or
- Use hourly emissions profiles from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) AVoided Emissions and geneRation Tool (AVERT)
- Use national grid mix coefficients from the International Energy Agency CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion 2017 report to calculate GHG emissions by energy source.
- ISO 52000-1:2017 – Greenhouse gas emission factors for each building energy source shall be determined consistently with ISO Standard 52000-1:2017 and published for the country or region where the project is located.
