01 | Introduction

Why iCRBN?

iCRBN is a scenario analysis tool developed by KEO to allow our clients to examine the best way to reduce carbon emissions through design. Within the cityscape, it offers an extended assessment of possible alternatives.

iCRBN is a new and unique city scale carbon accounting analysis tool that supports decision makers for cities, communities, and large real estate portfolios.

iCRBN is one of the KEO’s key solutions for reducing the impact of climate change.

Analytics and
Scenarios Modelling

To understand the carbon reduction potential of cities, we created a tool that can evaluate the energy of buildings, the materials of buildings and infrastructure, construction operations, life cycle water consumption, mobility, waste, landscape design, renewable energy, and future scenarios of power grid connectivity.

 

City Scale Carbon Analysis Dimensions

Operational Energy

Energy consumption in buildings is linked to the efficiency of the design, heating, ventilation, air conditioning system

and their operational strategies.

Building Materials

Construction materials of new projects have embodied carbon emissions which are associated to their manufacturing activities. 

Infrastructure Materials

Cities include external public spaces, roads and utilities for which energy is consumed during their manufacturing and construction.

Construction Emissions

During  the construction stage of a new projects, carbon emissions are released to the atmosphere by construction vehicles and generators. 

Lifetime Mobility

Mobility by cars and other vehicles is considered to be part of the carbon calculations. Future emissions include alternative means of transportation and low carbon fuels.

Emissions from Waste

Waste generation is increasing in cities. Organic waste generation has atmospheric emissions which are linked to climate change. 

Water Consumption

Water may be withdrawn from wells, desalinated from the sea or recycled. Water consumption efficiency is of a crucial importance.

Green Parks

Green spaces within cities are playing a crucial role to improve various socio-economic factors in addition to removing carbon from the atmosphere. 

Power Grid

The carbon content of power by utilities can be further reduced by better generation efficiencies and integration of renewable energy. 

Renewable Energy

The integration of renewable energy sources is expected to be increased at local level and utility scale.
