  3. 3. t Problem: GHG emissions are not easy to track Approach: Set up repeatable processes • Gap Analysis • What can be improved to implement the GPC inventory standard? • Workflow Process • How is the current workflow and data flow? • Requirements Definition • repeatable, automated process • Add on-the-ground measurements
  4. 4. t Carbon Track & Trace - CTT • Monitoring, Reporting, Understanding of city-level greenhouse gas emissions • Both emission inventories and real-time local measurements • Better accounting leads to better prioritization of mitigation projects • Part of larger SmartCities approaches
  5. 5. t Integrating workflows and sensors Sensor Network Inventory Workflow Emissions Monitoring
  6. 6. t 7 Approach and Activities •Integration of measured emission data into city planning and decisions support •Deployment of LoRa sensor network in Trondheim and Vejle •Development of an analytics framework of GHC emissions •Work towards GPC-compliant inventories •Development of a business plan, fundraising • Scaling out, deployment/testing internationally

  9. 9. t 10 • Using local data helps to see effects of local actions. • Good data is a foundation for better decision making. • 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 insights. • CTT allows for fast feedback loops. • CTT will be available late 2016.
