H2Optimise - Driving Data, Steering Sustainability!
with unpublished profiles.
H2Optimise is dedicated to devising strategies that effectively reduce emissions by minimising idle durations. Through our integrated application platform designed for employees, we have introduced a rewards system contingent upon the reduction of carbon emissions. This innovative approach aims to inspire a reduction in unnecessary idling instances, fostering a culture of heightened environmental consciousness and resource conservation.
We used the Unitywater vehicle management data set. This data set was a comprehensive collection of information detailing various aspects of the fleet's operations.
To represent the data visually a pie chart, Bar Chart and QGIS. This enabled us to identify the routes of the employees and the emissions from the vehicles.
As we move forward, our vision extends to the enhancement of Unitywater's vehicles. We envision integrating an app that tracks an employee's Driving idle and stop time which then is calculated into a percentage of CO2 emitted, in which Unitywater can utilise to provide a reduction of CO2 emission, for the service trucks generators, solar panels, and/or batteries to address the unavoidable idle times. This proactive approach would not only minimise emissions but also contribute to the adoption of sustainable practices, aligning with Unitywater's commitment to a greener future.
Unitywater Vehicle Management Data
Description of Use
We complied the Idle Duration Data and the Driving Distance Data to calculate and plot the amount of CO2 emitted, of these data sets.
Driving a better way forward
Unitywater travels over 3.9 million kilometres each year maintaining water and wastewater services for our region. How might we use our vehicle data to benefit people, planet and productivity in the future? How might we improve our commitment to environmental sustainability, simplified work practices and people safety using vehicle data?
Must use the Unitywater dataset. Must use at least one other dataset. Preference will be given to those providing solutions relevant to the following local Council regions: City of Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council.
