Managing Operations While Transitioning to Carbon Neutrality 

02-20-2020 13:03

Summary

Cornell University explores the complex operating environment and the decisions necessary to operate its district utility systems in both an economic and sustainable manner. Discussions in this talk will include: why is it important set a price on carbon, and how can it be done; what is your marginal emissions rate and should it be compared with the grid’s; and what kinds of dashboards can be used to help operators minimize costs and carbon emissions. In this presentation Cornell will describe the university’s energy procurement agreements and the decision processes that are being used now, and could be used in the future, to both maximize operations and minimize carbon emissions.
