Library to calculate CO2 (equivalent) emissions for a given transport trip.

Project description

Transport CO2

Calculate CO2 (equivalent) emissions for a given transport trip and provide a simple interpretation of the result.

Goals

This project is intended to be used to help raise awareness about the cost of transportation choices, so people can make informed decisions.

Initial focus

We are initially focused on ground (road and rail) transport, as it is the most significant source on transport greenhouse gas emissions.

API Design

This library intends to provide:

  • a statistical estimate of greenhouse gase emissions given information about a trip (origin/destination, mode, and/or distance)
  • a simple interpretation of the statistical emissions estimate, in terms such as "high" or "low"

Research

The carbon estimates produced by this model may be based on the following resources. A full description of the model, including data sources, will be provided as the library takes shape.

Further improvements to the model may come from other sources, such as the following.
