RP2007u1: Integrated Carbon Metrics – Tool alignment with the National Carbon Offset Standard for Precincts

Project leader name: 
A/Prof Thomas Wiedmann
Project status: 
Current
Project period: 
03/2018 to 12/2018

In this project two tools developed through the primary RP2007 project will be aligned with the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) for precincts. The first tool is the Precinct Carbon Assessment (PCA) tool developed at the University of South Australia, the second is the Embodied Carbon Explorer (ECE) online tool developed at UNSW Sydney.

The goals are to maximise the compatibility of both tools with NCOS requirements and to enhance the usability of the tools for end-users so that standard-compliant assessments of various precinct carbon neutrality scenarios can be made and demonstrated by using the respective strengths of the tools.

Users of the tools will be CRCLCL industry partners as well as other industry clients or consultants interested in NCOS Precinct assessments.
