Exploring the concept of climate neutrality and the development of roadmaps to achieve it at a university, focusing on the efforts of JKU and its Energy Institute towards CO2 reduction and reaching climate neutrality by 2030. The roadmap involves stakeholder engagement, defining system boundaries, using tools like ClimCalc to measure GHG emissions, and detailed planning for a sustainable future.

  1. JKU Roadmap CO2 neutral university LIT Breakfast Briefing 13 June 2023 Melanie Kn bl, Simon Moser, Katharina Rusch Altenberger Stra e 69, A-4040 Linz | Tel.:+43-732-2468-5656 | email: office@energieinstitut-linz.at | www.energieinstitut-linz.at

  2. Outline Overview What is meant by climate neutrality? What is a roadmap? Designing a roadmap What happened so far? Comparison with other universities Data collection for JKU Next steps 2

  3. Energieinstitut an der JKU Non-university research institution with a multidisciplinary structure. The multidisciplinary cooperation of our three departments enables a comprehensive and interdisciplinary holistic analysis of the (future) topic of energy. energy economics energy law energy technology 40 employees investigate an energy system that positively influences living, economic and environmental spaces, strengthens European economies and reduces fossil energy sources as far as possible. 3

  4. Overview Austria's governments target for achieving climate neutrality: 2040 most universities are not climate neutral yet high potential for CO2 reduction (esp. energy and mobility sectors) JKUs performance agreement: achieving CO2 neutrality by 2030 Energy Institute at the JKU was assigned in order to support the JKU team with scientific advice to create a roadmap 4

  5. You may ask yourself: Was is meant by climate neutrality? What is a roadmap? 5

  6. What is meant by climate neutrality? ISO 14068: Carbon neutrality Specific period, in which no new GHG emissions are left into the atmosphere Residual emissions have to be compensated Projects must comply with guidelines a roadmap? Roadmap Preparatory nature Rough planning of steps to be taken Over a long period Roadmap development supported through workshops and feedback sessions Stakeholders = knowledge carriers and acting participants Predefined system boarders: Hauptcampus, Campus Hagenberg, Med-Campus incl. rented buildings/rooms ClimCalc Tool to measure GHG emissions 6

  7. Roadmap Commitment Climate neutrality? System boundaries: Campus, buildings (BIG), Scope 1+2+3? Stakeholder from JKU Energy situation? (often: data?) Visioning: Targeting what will be included? Detailed roadmap 7 Source: IEA (2014): Energy Technology Roadmaps - a guide to development and implementation. Web: https://iea.blob.core.windows.net/assets/ca7594aa-1de1-4a3a-a531-121238ef5efb/TechnologyRoadmapAguidetodevelopmentandimplementation.pdf (2023-96-12)

  8. Designing a roadmap Idea Idea of becoming climate neutral Data collection Which data is already available? How can CO2 emissions be quantified? Data collection Vision Vision Clarify in detail what should be reached System boundaries, etc. Roadmap Roadmap Steps & measures towards implementation Sequence and interactions Framework interrelations 8

  9. You may ask yourself: What is the status of other universities? 9

  10. Comparison with other universities Unis in Austria, Germany and Switzerland Do they already have a roadmap? If yes, how is it specified? Copy/Paste of actions allowed Source: sterreich Karte | Ferienhaus sterreich (ferienhaus-oesterreich.net) 10

  11. Comparison with other universities Key facts Percentage share of actions by area: Complete roadmap: 3 24,8% 6,9% 32,7% Aim for becoming climate neutral: 2030: 5 2025: 1 2035: 1 Already achieved: 1 35,6% 11

  12. Comparison with other universities Creating awareness in general: use of electricity Commuting mobility: bikes Providing (financial support) (e-)bikes (covered) bike spaces / boxes Providing self-service stations, bike safety training, showers for free Commuting mobility: cars Extention of e-mobility Promotion of public transport E.g. Klimaticket Energy Energy monitoring Use of smart meters Obtain UZ-46 certified green power Business travel regulations Preference of using train/bus over car/airplane 12
