Project Description

Carbon dioxide emission has the main impact on global climate change and the world must be responsible for this. Electricity generation produces 47,6% of the carbon dioxide emission respectively, followed by manufacturing and mining and transportation. With the development of technology, individuals own a variety of electrical appliances together with their daily activities which they cannot control how much Carbon dioxide emission they have produced to the atmosphere.
Everyone has almost 240,000 hours from today until 2050 to contribute to our global target by zero emission.
We deliver Electronic Co2 dashboard to bring key information of energy usage in Australia, Co2 dashboard will be located in majority of Australia public spaces.

Data Story

Based on analysis from NOAA’s Global Monitoring Lab, global average atmospheric carbon dioxide was 414.72 parts per million (“ppm” for short) in 2021, setting a new record high despite the continued economic drag from the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the jump of 2.58 ppm over 2021 amounts tied for 5th-highest annual increase in NOAA's 63-year record.

CO2 emission are generated by burning of fossil fuel which mainly come from coal and fuel
We can see that transportation and electricity consume most of the energy over other industries.
15.4 g of CO2 is generated by each person

Team DataSets

Annual emission per capita by Year

Description of Use To calculate how much Kwh each person should consume for the necessary requirements.

Data Set

Tracking city carbon emissions- Adelaide city

Description of Use In terms of energy consumption, electricity account for the most of CO2 emission consumption compared to natural gas and Commercial buildings generate most of the CO2 emissions, account for 36% in 2020.

Data Set

Australian energy consumption 2020

Description of Use Electricity accounts for more than a quarter of CO2 emission

Data Set

Australia's carbon emission profile

Description of Use In 2011, CO2 emissions from Electricity was 37%

Data Set

Climate Change: Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide | NOAA

Description of Use We need to focus on the main sources of CO2 emission.

Data Set

Large-scale Renewable Energy Target supply data

Description of Use Identify the Megawatt capacity and the source of renewable energy for large scale projects

Data Set

Australian Energy Statistics, Table O Electricity generation by fuel type 2020-21 and 2021

Description of Use Identify the most and least common sources of renewable and non-renewable sources in Australia in the last 5 years

Challenge Entries

Helping Australia reach net zero emissions by 2050

Australia has a goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. How can Australians use public spaces, including city landscapes to achieve these goals?

Eligibility: This question is open to all participants, excluding those currently working at CER, AER, DISR or ACCC.

Best Creative Use of Data in Response to ESG (AU)

How can you showcase data in a creative manner to respond to ESG challenges? How can we present and visualise data to stimulate conversation and promote change?

Eligibility: Must use a least one Australian relevant dataset - combining datasets preferred.

Go to Challenge | 31 teams have entered this challenge.

Emissions: The Dark side of Buildings

How might we address the built environment which accounts for 40% of the world’s GHG emissions through data sets and smart technologies? How will the phenomenon of a hybrid “return to the workplace” impact how we use existing spaces and plans for developing new spaces? How do we create the right mix of brownfield and greenfield projects to optimise results of efforts?
