Universities around the world are realizing the importance of sustainable practices and are working towards shrinking their carbon footprint by focusing on renewable energy resources, clean technology, and carbon offsets. This guide will provide complimentary information on carbon credits along with case studies where universities have incorporated them into their sustainability strategy. Also included: tips for identifying high-quality credits and avoiding low-quality credits that do not reduce carbon emissions. Read this guide to learn more about what carbon credits are and how to navigate the process of measuring, assessing, and obtaining carbon credits.
The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.
