Title: Energy/Carbon Footprinting Curriculum Development


1
Energy/Carbon Footprinting Curriculum Development
  • Richard Smardon, Ph.D., SUNY/ESF rsmardon_at_esf.edu
  • For February 8th Workshop
  • SUNY Global Center

2
EST 427/627 Environmental Energy Audit
  • Course objectives
  • Familiarization with GHG energy processes
  • Assess CNY municipal operations for GHG
    production/energy utilization action plans
  • Possible other campus projects
  • Student involvement training with on campus
    community projects

3
EST 427/627 Environmental Energy Audit
  • Course history with C. Hall A. Drew
  • Campus student energy usage in 1999
  • Carousel Mall Energy usage in 2000
  • Syracuse energy GHG production
  • Best trees for carbon sequestration plus
  • Rand track forest/open space functions
  • 2008 AASHE rating plus campus GHG

4
City of Syracuse GHG
  • In 2001-2003 worked with the City of Syracuse, NY
    as a class project
  • Utilizing ICLEIs Cities for Climate Protection
    software to calculate baseline GHG for city
    operations
  • This plus other measures won city national EPA
    award in 2005

5
Theres carbon in those trees!
  • In 2006 student/faculty teams worked with US
    Forest Service Data Base UFORE to
  • Calculate optimum tree species mix for carbon
    sequestration, air pollution amelioration,
    hydrologic uptake and microclimate affects
  • Paper later published by EnviroNews in 2008
  • And then picked up by Internet news spots

6
Open space is valuable!
  • In 2007 student teams worked on assessing an
    undeveloped open space area in the SW corner of
    Syracuse
  • Which led to the City of Syracuse to consider
    leaving the area undeveloped for multiple natural
    services and
  • Looking into carbon sequestration values for
    standing biomass on city property and rows

7
Carbon Neutral Campus?
  • In 2008 two student teams worked on
  • A sustainability rating system being developed by
    the AASHE-applied to SUNY/ESF
  • And the impact of a new carbonate fuel cell and
    other measures on campus carbon footprint
  • Leading to 2009 student teams working on the
    carbon neutral goal for campus operations

8
Renewable Energy Research Training
  • Cellulosic biomass to energy research
  • Fast growing willow biomass
  • Northern hardwoods to four product streams
  • Pilot biorefinery effort
  • Academic/industry consortium
  • Bioprocess engineering degree
  • Renewable energy undergraduate minor

9
LEED certification training
  • Construction management program at SUNY/ESF has
    been doing LEED certification training for
    architects and engineers in CNY for about 5 years
    in conjunction with US Green Building Council

10
EST 427/627 2010 Projects
  • Lighting survey as part of ESF carbon neutral
    plan
  • Onondaga County facilities carbon footprint data
    compilation for input into CCP spread sheet

11
EST 427/627 2011 Projects
  • City of Syracuse Municipal operations
  • Structures energy use
  • Traffic lighting system
  • Motor pools for City Departments
  • Syracuse Airport
  • All using City for Climate Protection (CCP) ICLEI
    protocols

12
EST 427/627 Projects
  • 2012 class projects
  • Municipal carbon footprints for Town of Preble
    Village of Skaneateles
  • State Fair solid waste management
  • ESF campus re-audit for carbon footprint

13
EST 427/627 class structure
  • 1st week course introduction
  • 2nd-3rd weeks carbon accounting
  • 4th through 10th week teams work on specific
    projects
  • Final two weeks finalize projects climate
    action planning

Discussion

1. ESF does not have a specific goal for 2011
however, these results are encouraging in the
realization of the carbon neutral by 2015
goal. 2. Since the inventory completed in 2007,
ESF has been successful in mitigating 694 metric
tons of CO2. 3. Although ESF appears to be on
progress to reach carbon neutrality, a great deal
of mitigation still hangs in the balance of
initiatives that have yet to be set in place.
