  • A novel IoT-based dynamic carbon footprint approach to reducing uncertainties in carbon footprint assessment of a solar PV supply chain

    Solar Photovoltaic (PV) system is considered as one of the most important renewable energy sources as global community pledging to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG). However, there is environment cost for producing PV systems, including all carbon emissions generated from all phases of manufacturing supply chain. Thus, energy payback time (EPBT) has become important criteria to evaluate the performance PV systems. Estimating EPBT of PV systems relies on life cycle analysis (LCA) assessment. Current carbon footprint (CF) calculation uses long-run CF averaging method, which generates static CF information. However, solar PV Supply chain is quite dynamic because PV system components may be manufactured in different regions and use different power sources. Thus, the averaging method is not able to capture the dynamics of CF and that also implies that the uncertainties and data quality of CF auditing are negatively impacted. This study proposes an IoT-based dynamic carbon footprint approach to address the challenges above. The proposed method aims to capture LCA measuring data from IoT sensors and calculate dynamic CF of PV module across PV supply chain. The dynamic CF allows each PV module to have unique CF pedigree information based on its source of parts, the mix of energy types used during the manufacturing stage, and other CF related allocation data. The dynamic CF information can greatly reduce the information asymmetry between data providers and CF auditors, thus lowering the uncertainties and improving the data quality of CF auditing. A case study of a solar PV supply chain is presented in this paper, and the proposed approach is evaluated against the current practice.

  • A study on Low-Carbon City Proper Planning based on Carbon Footprint

    The research tool of Carbon Footprint was brought forward to formulate Low- Carbon City Proper Planning better. In order to accommodate the long range and uncertainty in Low-Carbon City Proper planning, for example, Beijing Shijingshan District, all kinds of Carbon Footprint and the capacity of Carbon sink of city proper were calculated and analyzed by the computing method of Carbon Footprint, then, the Low-Carbon City Proper planning ideas of Shijingshan District was proposed. The result showed that the Carbon Footprint of Shijingshan District was relatively large, especially the Carbon Footprint of production had reached 17008722 ton, and the Carbon Footprint of life had reached 2144.33 ton. To reduce the carbon emissions of city proper, the traditional economy development mode should be changed, the industrial structure should be adjusted, the energy conservation technology should be developed, the Carbon sink resource should be expanded, and the buildings with Low-Carbon, transportation with Low-Carbon, and life of Low-Carbon should be developed.

  • Carbon Footprint of Energy Consumption and Environmental Impact in Autonomous Regions of China

    The research of the relationship between carbon footprint generated by energy consumption and environmental quality could provide scientific basis for the coordinated development of energy, environment and economy. This paper calculated the carbon footprint energy consumption in China's autonomous regions from the perspective of carbon cycle. Meanwhile, it adopts principal component method to make comprehensive evaluation of environmental quality in autonomous regions. The results show that the carbon footprint in China's autonomous regions is increasing and the environmental quality is deteriorating. This paper adopts gray correlation analysis to analyze the relevance of carbon footprint generated by energy consumption with overall environmental quality and various environmental indicators and impact conditions. The results show that carbon footprint generated by energy consumption is highly correlated with changes of overall environmental quality and various environmental indicators. The increase of energy consumption leads to the degradation of environmental quality and also increases the carbon footprint.

  • Carbon footprint research of landscaping works based on life cycle analysis

    The carbon footprint research based on life cycle analysis is more likely to show a comprehensive picture of overall carbon emission in the construction process, effectively guiding the "low carbon" implementation of all work. In this paper, it is preliminarily discussed the carbon footprint calculation boundary and methods corresponding to the 3 stages of construction, maintenance, and demolition in landscaping works. It proposed that landscaping works should centre on reduction of hidden carbon footprint in planning, design, and construction management, and reduce dominant carbon footprint in the 3 stages through reasonable selection of planted vegetation, shortened long distance transport and reducing high fuel consumption of machineries. Finally, the detailed estimation research is made into the landscaping works for the open space of Wuhan Optics Valley Road with the aim of exploring carbon emission specific calculation indicators and methods in its all working processes.

  • A CFL-ontology model for carbon footprint reasoning

    As the carbon emission becomes a serious problem, a lot of research works now focus on how to monitor and manage carbon footprints. One promising approach is to create a “carbon footprint aware” world to expose people to the carbon footprints associated with the products they buy and the services they use. Carbon footprint labeling (CFL) of products enables the consumers to choose their products not only based on quality and cost, but also based on their carbon footprints. Similarly, carbon footprints of common activities and services can also be labeled to enable informed choices. CFL can impact the supply chain operations as well. With the carbon footprint information, the carbon-footprint-optimal supply chain can be identified to model the supply chains with least carbon emissions. Existing carbon footprint management systems mostly rely on databases to maintain carbon footprint data. But database alone is not sufficient for carbon footprint labeling. In this paper, we develop an ontology model, CFL-ontology, to specify how products are produced, the processes involved in activities and services, and the computation functions to derive the carbon footprints of the products, activities, and services, based on the associated descriptions. With the CFL- ontology, reasoning can be performed to automatically derive the carbon footprint labels for individual products and services.

  • Strategies of Environmental Management to Eliminate the Carbon Footprint Generated by the use of Conventional Energies in a Hospital Institution Level 4

    It is intended to evaluate the environmental impact generated by the use of conventional energy in a hospital level 4, and the mitigation obtained with the implementation of a photovoltaic system. The above taking into account that, in order to guarantee compliance with health services, the institutions can use different conventional and some renewable energy sources from the country's electricity grid. In this study, the institution supplements its high daily energy demands using mains electricity and steam boilers. The latter contribute to worsen environmental health problems by emitting greenhouse gases (determined in tonnes of CO2 equivalent) daily into the environment. As a possible solution to the above problem, the specific and overall energy demands of the institution are analyzed. With this information, the carbon footprint, through ISO 14064-1, will be calculated over a period of one year, identifying the direct and indirect sources and their respective emissions. Subsequently, environmental management strategies were established to mitigate the carbon footprint generated. As a result, we identify and present in this article, the co-benefits for the implementation of a solar photovoltaic system, considering national and international regulations.

  • Reducing carbon footprint in redundancy allocation problem applied to multi-state systems

    This work introduces a new approach to solve the redundancy allocation problem (RAP) by including the optimization of carbon footprint for multi-state systems (MSS). Each component of such systems is supposed to have a carbon emission factor to assess its impact on the environment. Therefore, it is convenient to integrate renewable energy into production subsystems by considering the emission factor in the design of a given system. This paper presents the design of a hybrid wind turbine / Gas system, while taking into consideration the optimization of the carbon footprint. This optimization is carried out taking in consideration the evaluation of the availability, which is set by the introduction of the universal generating function (UGF), and by optimizing the cost. To do so, we introduce an Improved Genetic Algorithm (IGA). The experimentation results and discussion showed the effectiveness of our algorithm.
