Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions to Net Zero

Energy Efficiency No Comments »

Hear from Ted Borer, Energy Plant Director about how Princeton will achieve its net zero greenhouse gas emissions goal.

This month, we spotlight Princeton’s new net zero greenhouse gas reduction target. Starting now with scalable early action, we are setting the stage to become a fossil-fuel free campus by 2046. This target includes both direct emissions from on-site energy production and fleet fuel use, and indirect emissions from purchased electricity. Additional indirect emissions from commuting, procurement and other activities are being studied to assess actionable reductions.

Our actions toward net zero emissions rely on both known and unknown strategies. Today’s actions range from encouraging behavioral changes and the installation of new renewable energy infrastructure on campus, to rigorous investigation of new renewable electricity generated within our region.

Pipelines are essential for keeping the lights on, homes warm, plants running, planes flying and water flowing. They also provide one of the safest means of transport. By taking some effective actions, they can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emission significantly.

Most experts agree that the key to avoiding worsening effects from a changing climate is to cut greenhouse gas emissions to zero, and through a strategy called “prevention,” humans can significantly cut emissions.

Explore how scientists approach the challenge, and discover the technologies that will help get us there.
