Researchers at ASU have developed a way to track greenhouse gas emissions, not just across individual cities, but right down to individual buildings and their work is drawing attention from all over the world.
The so-called “Hestia Project” is a large computer that can handle all the data ASU researchers have been compiling for three years. It’s data they hope will change the world.
“It’s an effort to quantify fossil fuel carbon dioxide emissions, down to the building and street segment level,” said ASU Professor Kevin Gurney.
Dubbed “Hestia” after the Greek goddess of Hearth and Home, researches have come up with a system that tracks greenhouse fuel emissions so precisely that they’re able to see which buildings and streets are leaving the biggest carbon footprint.
