  3. Trans005 Travel Demand Analysis recommendation - Returned to the SWATeam

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on February 16, 2016, to discuss the SWATeam recommendation, Trans005 Travel Demand Analysis. The iWG's final comment was:

    "What would be the end result? There are many reasons to travel, some are optional and some are not. For example, junior faculty who are working on tenure need to network and engage with other experts in their area. Other times, it may be sufficient to conduct business or the meeting virtually. This is more of a sociological study, maybe a student in the Sociology department can help.  Jess Tang will work with the SWATeam to see if this is plausible."

    Following the iWG meeting, this recommendation was returned to the Transportation SWATeam for further discussion within the SWATeam.

  4. Trans006 Differential Parking Pricing for Shared Vehicles recommendation - Returned to the SWATeam

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on February 16, 2016, to discuss the SWATeam recommendation, Trans006 Differential Parking Pricing for Shared Vehicles. The iWG's final comment was:

    "Study to determine if differential pricing for campus parking will encourage car sharing.The study of the parking pricing structure and alternatives for changing it can be very complex and involve a lot of issues. Have they addressed this in their recent Parking Master Plan effort? It was suggested to add Brian Farber from Parking to the Transportation SWATeam and examine what has been addressed in their Master Plan, before undertaking this study."

    Following the iWG meeting, this recommendation was returned to the Transportation SWATeam for further discussion within the SWATeam.

  5. Trans007 Campus fleet analysis and Planning recommendation - Returned to SWATeam

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on February 16, 2016, to discuss the SWATeam recommendation, Trans007 Campus Fleet Analysis and Planning. The iWG's final comment was:

    "They have suggested that this analysis is ideally completed by an industry professional. The iWG recommends that this study can be broken down into phases where phase 1 could be done by students, and phase 2 then could be done by an outside consultant (industry expert). Ben will suggest this to the SWATeam."

    Following the iWG meeting, this recommendation was returned to the Transportation SWATeam for further discussion and modification to the recommendation within the SWATeam.

  6. Criteria developed for prioritizing feasibility studies recommended by SWATeams

    Associated Project(s): 

    The iCAP Working Group approved the following criteria for evaluating potential feasibilty studies recommended by SWATeams.

    Criteria for Feasibility Studies

    • Emissions reduction – using the iCAP’s emissions numbers
    • Financial cost reduction – per the formal campus budget impact
    • Educational factor – related to students learning more
    • Promotional factor – related to UIUC reputation
    • Ease of implementation – related to the number of hurdles for getting this done, or using the results of the study to implement a change on campus
    • Political factor – similar to promotional, but related more to our responsiveness to community concerns and requests
    • Resource conservation – including energy, water, and materials
    • Connection to iCAP Objectives
    • Behavior change – support a sustainable culture
    • Cost Benefit Analysis – will the cost align with perceived benefit
  7. iWG001 Resilience Commitment recommendation

    Associated Project(s): 

    The iCAP Working Group (iWG) met on December 12, 2015, and made the following recommendation:

    "We recommend that the Chancellor sign Second Nature’s Climate Commitment, which adds a Resilience Commitment (addressing climate adaptation) to our existing Carbon Commitment (focused on carbon neutrality). This commitment would involve partnering with the local communities to perform a resilience assessment, developing resilience indicators that are appropriate for our campus, and incorporating resilience targets into the iCAP. Additionally, should the campus choose to sign by January 4, 2016, we would be recognized as a Charter Signatory."

    See attached the iWG assessment of iWG001 Resilience Commitment recommendation complete with comments from all the iWG members.
