As part of an effort to increase options for corporates looking to use renewable energy sources to meet thermal energy needs, the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC) released a report, Renewable Heating and Cooling for Industrial Applications: Guidance for Carbon Accounting, developed by Navigant and supported by Mars Incorporated.
"Despite its large energy and carbon footprint and its significant potential to reduce carbon emissions, options for large buyers to use renewable energy for heating and cooling remains limited," said Bryn Baker, deputy director of renewable energy at World Wildlife Fund, speaking on behalf of the RTC. "Without clarity about the impacts of different thermal energy projects, due in large part to inconsistency in the way companies are calculating emissions, this sector is lagging in deploying new purchasing options."
Read the report to discover how a standardized approach for tracking and reporting emissions will benefit this rapidly growing sector:
