Co-benefits Evaluation Tools
Urban Energy System:
This tool is a simulation model designed for evaluating the
climate co-benefits of an urban energy system in the short term.
The tool evaluates climate co-benefits of the urban energy
system based on different scenarios of socioeconomic,
technological and demographic developments. The tool relates
systematically the climate change based on the specific energy
demand in different sectors in cities to the corresponding
social, economic and technological factors that affect this
calculates the total energy demand for each end-use category,
aggregating the urban energy system into three main "energy
consumer" sectors: Residential, Commercial and Service.
Welcome to the
Co-benefits Evaluation Tools from UNU-IAS, where find innovation in action. Here, you can
evaluate the climate co-benefits in cities.
Discover new ways of deploying technologies to reduce GHG and air
pollutions in cities and look for policy upgrades, with
alternative energy and clean technology.
This Evaluation Tool combines a quantitative spreadsheet of a
simplified representation of the transport sector with an institutional
evaluation to evaluate not just the magnitude of emission reductions from
local air pollution and carbon emissions but also to determine barriers to
implementation of policies and projects.
The tool is a linear representation of the public transport system in a
city, from which the implementation of policies in four areas
Activity, Shift, Improve and Fuel (ASIF)
evaluated in terms of its carbon and local air pollution emissions.
Urban Waste Management
This tool evaluates the environmental impacts including GHG emissions and
air pollutants accompanied by energy implications and cost-benefit analysis
of the various waste management strategies by means of a Life Cycle
Assessment (LCA). This approach is used to consider coordination of a number
of actions to recover material and energy and to reduce environmental impact
through Integrated Waste Management System (IWMS).
