Energy offset (kWh/year)
The calculators provided should provide either annual or lifetime savings. If                  kWh energy saved per lifetime
the calculator provides lifetime energy savings, determine lifetime in years                          Years lifetime
and divide lifetime energy savings by the years. In some cases, the years
might be under the second tab of the spreadsheet, “Assumptions”.                                  = kWh energy saved/year



Emissions offset (lbs CO2/year)
Same concept as with energy offset, but with CO2 emissions. If emissions are                      lbs CO2 saved per lifetime
given in carbon instead of carbon dioxide (C not CO2), see Conversions                                  Years lifetime
section below for appropriate conversion.
                                                                                                = lbs CO2 energy saved/year

Assumed Project Lifetime (years)
If you know the lifetime of your project, such as expected life of the technology or how long the project will be implemented, state that
here. If the lifetime is unknown, refer to the Estimated Lifetimes section below. Note: For planning purposes, you may want to run
calculations for 2-3 different lifetime estimates. The final output results are very sensitive to this input.


Project Lifetime energy offset
Take the annual energy offset, recorded above, and multiply by estimated                  Annual Energy Offset * Lifetime in Years
project lifetime.
                                                                                                   = Lifetime energy Offset

Project Lifetime emissions offset
Take the annual emissions offset, recorded above, and multiply by estimated           Annual CO2 Emissions Offset * Lifetime in Years
project lifetime.
                                                                                                 = Lifetime Emissions Offset

Converting Miles per hour to Meters per second
Use the following conversions:



Converting Carbon to CO2
To convert carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbon (C), multiply the lbs CO2 times
(12/44) (or .27273). (This is the ratio of the atomic weight of C over CO2.) Or
to convert carbon to carbon dioxide, multiply the lbs of C by (44/12) (or
3.66667).

Converting Pounds (lbs) to Tonnes (ton)
To convert CO2 or C lbs to tonnes, you can use one of the following
conversions (depending on your preferred conversion)

Converting kWh to CO2
If you already know the kWh used by the lighting and appliances, then you
can actually multiply the amount of kWh by the carbon intensity of our
electricity in Minnesota, which is 1.810 lbs CO2/kWh. (EPA EGrid)



Fuel Emissions Factors
Can be used to estimate CO2 offset by another system. From MPCA, except
Electricity is from EPA eGrid 2005.




Converting kWh to CO2
If you already know the kWh used by the lighting and appliances, then you
can actually multiply the amount of kWh by the carbon intensity of our
electricity in Minnesota, which is 1.810 lbs CO2/kWh. (EPA EGrid)
Putting all three Carbon conversions together
These calculations together can help you take either electrical output, carbon
or carbon dioxide emissions and understand them in various forms.

                                                                   Example:

              1 mph = 0.44704 meters per second
             1 meter per second = 2.23693629 mph



                    lbs CO2 * .27273 = lbs C
                   lbs C * 3.66667 = lbs CO2




               1 metric tonne = 1,000kg = 2,205lb
                1 US short ton = 907kg = 2,000lb



             kWh * 1.810 lbs CO2/kWh = CO2 output




               Natural Gas: 11.07 lbs CO2/therm
                Fuel Oil: 22.13 lbs CO2/gallon
                Electricity: 1.810 lbs CO2/kWh
                Gasoline: 19.56 lbs CO2/gallon
                Propane: 12.67 lbs CO2/gallon



             kWh * 1.810 lbs CO2/kWh = CO2 output
  ___ kWh * 1.810 lbs CO2 per kWh * (12/44) C per CO2 /
              tonnes conversion = C output

     750 kWh * 1.810 lbs CO2/kWh = 1,357.5 lbs CO2
           452.2 lbs CO2 * (12/44) = 370.23 lbs C
370.23 lbs C / 2,205 lbs per metric ton = .1679 metric tons C
