Abstract
This Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Plan study is based on a residence solely powered by direct electricity from the national power grid. Most of the energy is utilized for cooling the ambient temperature through air-conditioning and refrigeration for food preservation and by doing so help to reduce energy cost with the added advantage of a healthier environment. This project is a demonstration of the homeowner's concern about environmental degradation which will affect the household and particularly the children living within. The methodology is adopted from The Climate Registry (TCR) and the inventory boundary includes the perimeter of the home covering mandatory gases of CO2, N2O and CH4. To mitigate GHG strategies, opportunities were identified using scope 2 purchase electricity and direct GHG emission source for mobile combustion of fuels. The household energy usage contributing the highest quantity of CO2 was listed for prioritization. The mitigation strategies are entirely internally funded as they do not attract any grant or incentives from local authorities. Data are electronically managed for quarterly review and yearly audit to ascertain if the estimates/calculations have data gaps. As part of the strategies to implement Knowledge Management (KM), data will be IT centric to facilitate capture, access, and reuse of information to analyze, track and to report for future improvements.
