Sanborn Head completed a greenhouse gas (GHG) evaluation for a mixed-used development in general accordance with the MEPA Greenhouse Gas Emissions Policy and Protocol for this valued client to enable a substantial site development plan to move forward.

Emissions were assessed from: 
  • direct and indirect building-related source emissions, and 
  • transportation-related indirect emissions based on forecasted trip generation rates.
The baseline building’s energy consumption was estimated using eQUEST (Quick Energy Simulation Tool version 3.60) energy modeling software.  Estimated electrical consumption (kilowatt-hours) and transportation-related emissions were converted to an annual CO2 emission rate.
 
The evaluation was incorporated into an Expanded Environmental Notification Form (EENF) submittal, which was among the first in the state to include such an assessment.
