While you can see the amount of energy each building pulls on campus, it is hard to get insight into how much they contribute to greenhouse gases. By reading campus data on building energy demand and solar energy production, we are able to get a sense of how much energy the buildings are pulling from the grid. Using California ISO data we can figure out how much of the grid energy is from renewable sources and how much comes from sources like natural gas, coal or nuclear.

In future versions the points will be scaled based on emissions and the colors of the points will indicate how high emissions are.

In addition, we use the hourly electrical demand provided by OSIsoft's database to allow users to determine which buildings have a very high carbon footprint. In future versions, we plan to finish implementing the sliding functionality to allow users to change which hour the data is presenting, which will show which hours have what amount of carbon footprint.
