Problem: GHG emissions are not easy to
Approach: Set up repeatable processes
• Gap Analysis
• What can be improved to implement the GPC
• Workflow Process
• How is the current workflow and data flow?
• Requirements Definition
• repeatable, automated process
• Add on-the-ground measurements
Carbon Track & Trace - CTT
• Monitoring, Reporting, Understanding of city-level
greenhouse gas emissions
• Both emission inventories and real-time local
• Better accounting leads to better prioritization of
• Part of larger SmartCities approaches
Integrating workflows and sensors
Approach and Activities
•Integration of measured emission data into city
planning and decisions support
•Deployment of LoRa sensor network in Trondheim
•Development of an analytics framework of GHC
•Work towards GPC-compliant inventories
•Development of a business plan, fundraising
• Scaling out, deployment/testing internationally

CTT Value Chain
• Using local data helps to see effects of local actions.
• Good data is a foundation for better decision
• Open datasets can reveal patterns in emissions.
• To get the most out of the existing open datasets, we
need to invest in ground sensors. This will enable
detailed monitoring of city-level emissions.
• Low-cost sensors can give more detailed local
• CTT allows for fast feedback loops.
• CTT will be available late 2016.
