5 easy ways to cut YOUR carbon footprint

To avoid the worst effects of the climate emergency, we will have to reduce our individual emissions to zero in the next 28 or so years. In this blog, I will focus on some of the practical and pragmatic things that I think are relatively easy to achieve.

The Carbon Cost of Everything

Embedded Emissions: The Carbon Cost of EveryTHING.

Manufacturing anything involves taking random combinations of atoms (usually manifested as a raw material) and processing them into a useful product. This takes huge amounts of energy, and causes lots of emissions.

Heating And Global Warming: Are We Burning Down The House?

Heating is the most significant carbon-emitting activity in buildings. Accounting for the coal, oil and gas used directly and indirectly via electricity generation for heating, 65% of all heating equipment produces greenhouse gases in some form. While the trend over the past decade is moving in the right direction, the damage has been done.

Binging? Diving into the Metaverse? Buying NFTs? Do you even care about the environment bro?

The Uptime Institute calculated that each time Cristiano Ronaldo posts a picture to Instagram, it takes 36 MWh to distribute it to all his followers. That’s the amount of power consumed by ten British households on average in a year.

Have we grown too comfortable with air conditioning?

Air conditioning is the fastest-growing energy segment in building end-use. Through upstream emissions at the power generation source, their rise in usage contributes to global warming that pushes us to seek chilled relief. How do we set the thermostat to sustainable?

Carbon cost of a burger

Engineering the low-carbon, cruelty-free, lab-grown hamburger of the future

87% of the greenhouse gas emissions from a burger come from the beef. Find out how simulation is helping to design the cruelty-free, low-carbon, lab-grown burger of the future.

Transportation emissions and the climate crisis

Transportation emissions add 8 billion tons of carbon dioxide to our atmosphere each year. Going green is the only way to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Keeping the lights on in a Climate Emergency

In the midst of climate emergency 63% of our electricity still comes from burning carbon dioxide belching fossil fuels, that kill millions of people every year. We investigate how simulation is helping to deliver a low-carbon future.

Engineers caused the Climate Emergency. Only engineering simulation can save us from it.

Since the industrial revolution human civilisation has become increasingly dependent on the combustion of large quantities of fossil fuels. Engineering a future without them is the biggest challenge our species has ever faced.
