Reducir las emisiones de CO2 a través de cambios de comportamiento de distintos grupos
A simple CO2 assessment tool for dwelling evaluation Three main activities have contributed towards a ‘low carbon economy’. First, the project activities have been part of a new subject, Sustainable Construction, in the School of Building Engineering; about 250 students participated in the project activities last year. In the present year about 600 students are registered in the subject. The students have a better knowledge about the impact of their decisions concerning the CO2 emissions of their building projects. Second, the International Conference on Energy Saving in Buildings, involved about 100 people from the construction industry, in particular technical architects, architects, students, local government agencies, like the Consejería de la Vivienda (Andalusia Housing Department), the Agencia Local de la Energía (Local Energy Agency of Seville) and the Agencia Andaluza de la Energía (Andalusia Energy Agency) as well as private enterprises, etc. The third activity, which is related to our research work, is the development of a simple CO2 assessment tool, which can be used by dwellers in order to calculate their emissions and change their behavior. The tool will be available through several web pages, i.e. Arditec, Power, the Environment Centre, etc.
Herramienta simplificada para el cálculo de emisiones
Se ha llegado una población muy variada a través de actividades con los ciudadanos, superando los objetivos. Undergraduate (900 in two years) and graduate (4 master thesis directly related to the project) students have participated in the project activities and in its development.. Also the academic staff (7 professors) from ARDITEC research group has participated and administration staff as well.
