This training will introduce you to some important innovations and key concepts introducted in the Community Protocol. It will also explain the distinction between in-boundary emissions sources, and emissions generating activities, which is a central concept in the Protocol.
This training will lead you through the steps for conducting a community GHG inventory, as laid out in the Community Protocol. It will also explain the requirements you need to meet to have a Protocol-compliant inventory.
This is the first of a two-part training explaining how to estimate emissions for the five Basic Emissions Generating Activities, the minimum required for inclusion under the Protocol. This training will cover emissions from use of electricity, use of fuel in residential and commercial stationary combustion equipment, and use of energy in potable water and wastewater treatment and distribution. You will learn how to conduct the Protocol methods, and where to go for the needed data.
