Project Details


Most cities today continue to struggle with data quality and data acquisition when conducting GHG emission inventories. Moreover, the lack of granular data (building- or street-level) inhibits the ability of cities to pinpoint the actual or potential impacts of mitigation strategies, which has been shown to be a significant barrier to attracting private capital for mitigation action. The Carbon Track and Trace Phase II (CTT 2.0) will deploy a number of GHG emissions sensors in Trondheim (Norway) and Vejle (Denmark) to develop real-time analytic capacity of transportation emissions. By combining the sensor data with other existing data sets (toll road counts, traffic data, air quality data, atmospheric diffusion data, passenger data) in a Big Data Analytics platform, CTT 2.0 will also be able to deliver new insights to city officials that can inform better policy and open up new business opportunities on top of the sensor and network backbones. Finally, CTT 2.0 will further develop a software workflow to support greater automation and reduced costs for city-level emissions reporting using GPC (or other) GHG emission reporting standards.
