  • This form will search for any of the words you enter in a field, not the exact phrase you enter. If you would like to search for an exact phrase, put double quotes (") around the phrase. For example, if you search for Bike Path you will get results containing either the word Bike OR the word Path, but if you search for "Bike Path" you will get results containing the exact phrase Bike Path.

  1. Agenda for meeting

    Associated Project(s): 

    Dear Colleagues:

    I have asked Tina Candler to schedule a meeting of our group for as soon as possible.

    I have attached the our Fall 2014 report….

    In preparation for our next meeting, please read the report and think about the following

    1. Should the transportation iCAP targets be modified?

    2. For each of the iCAP targets how should we modify the previous year’s report?  Are there new strategies or action steps that we should be proposing?

    3. Are there additional strategies to reduce transpiration emissions we have no thought of?

    4. Can we make proposals about additional data collection that would help to advance the interests of ICAP in the area of transportation.

    Please come to our next meeting prepared to discuss the above.  If you would like to edit our Fall 2014 report prior to the meeting, feell free to do so.

    Best wishes

    Dear Transportation SWATeam,

    The iCAP Working Group met today, and would like to thank you for your report!

    In the hopes that it will provide some assistance as you formulate your recommendations for the revised iCAP, to be presented at the iCAP Forum on October 22nd, we wanted to provide you with some additional files:

    1) A "template" for the iCAP sections that we ask that you use. This was written using Transportation as an example, so it should be easy for you to use!

    2) A "resources" document that summarizes the 2010 iCAP strategies, excerpts from a document that was put together back in FY13 summarizing progress at that time, a set of links to relevant pages on the iCAP Portal, and a list of the questions in the STARS report that are relevant to your team.  The STARS report is how our campus gets "graded" on our sustainability performance, so these questions may inspire ideas for things the campus should be doing.

    3) A table of emissions in your area as determined by the Clean Air Cool Planet calculator, which represents our officially reported emissions.  You can fill this in with your proposed goals, and include it in the template.

    4) A summary of all of our emissions in different categories, for context.

    5) The Clean Air Cool Planet calculator itself, updated for FY2014, in case you wish to dive into how the calculations are performed.

    We hope this information will be helpful to your team.  If there is anything we can do to help you with your important work in the coming month, please just ask!

    Cheers,

    Ben

  4. Calculation of air travel emissions

    Good morning all,

    To get air travel emissions, miles must be entered into the Clean Air-Cool Planet calculator. 

    Mileage data is not tracked for our campus. So, I request air travel dollar data from OBFS.  This number has become more reliable in recent years because of the T-card implementation.

     

    Air travel dollars are converted into miles using the passenger yield (fares per mile) data from Airlines for America

     

    In fy 2013, dollars spent on air travel was $9,283,105.82.  Passenger yield was $0.1514 (this is fy 12, apparently fy 13 was not yet available).

     

    Divide the two, and you get 61,477,522

    Best,

    Stephanie

  5. Transportation Emission files

    Associated Project(s): 

    Hello Transportation SWATeam,

    Per our discussion today, here are a couple of files and links.

    1. The most recent version of the Clean Air Cool Planet emissions calculator.
    2. Excerpts from the calculator as related to transportation emissions.  Note the tab called “data for average commute” explains the current math for the average commute distance. 
    3. 2007 mode-choice survey details: http://www.ihavemiplan.com/results/index.html
    4. 2011 mode-choice survey details: https://icap.sustainability.illinois.edu/project-update/mode-shift-update

    Both of the mode choice surveys were done in completely different ways and not exactly for the purpose we are using them.  It would probably be good to develop a survey specifically for this calculation purpose that can be administered by the UI in future years.

    Thanks,

    Morgan
