Volume 31: Clean Energy Technologies towards Carbon Neutrality

How to Achieve a Low Emission Home – A Case Study Morgan Boswell, Yaodong Wang



This paper contains a holistic approach to carbon
reduction within the household, assessing multiple areas
of consumption to identify sectors critical to lowering
emissions and solutions that are more effective when
combined. It finds that emissions from food and
transportation overshadow results from heat and
electricity and that lowering emissions through lifestyle
changes can be as effective as existing engineering

Keywords carbon neutrality, household emissions, energy consumption, holistic design
