Volume 40: Energy Transitions toward Carbon Neutrality: Part III

Research on energy consumption analysis and zero-carbonization transformation of existing universities—- Take the Balitai Campus of Nankai University as an example Baoquan Yin, Tianyu Luo, Chunyan Zhang, Qianxin Zhang, Letong Lv



With the proposal of China’s “dual carbon” strategy, zero-carbon transformation has become an important direction for the development of various industries, and the education field has also issued documents. The scale of construction, the number of students and energy consumption of colleges and universities continue to increase, and the carbon emission remains high. Taking Balitai Campus of Nankai University as an example, this paper starts with the analysis of the energy consumption of the school in recent years, carries out correlation analysis, excavates the main influencing factors of energy consumption, and proposes corresponding zero-carbonization transformation strategies. It adopts the scenario simulation method to analyze the benefits of energy conservation and emission reduction, and marks the relevant requirements of carbon emission indicators of university campuses in cold areas. This achievement is expected to provide a useful reference for existing universities in China to achieve carbon neutrality and provide a reference for the construction of zero-carbon campuses.
