The Campus Carbon Calculator was originally developed by the former non-profit Clean Air - Cool Planet and Sustainability Institute at UNH in 2001 and released to the public in 2004. Usage grew to a few dozen early adopters to about 200 during the first year. Today, thousands of institutions in the U.S. and abroad, have used the Calculator, including more than 90% of the U.S. colleges and universities that publicly report their greenhouse gas emissions.
Launched in 2009 with a $650,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), UNH’s Energy Efficiency Fund (EEF) has already seen more than $500,000 in energy savings “returns,” including over $250,000 in FY12 alone.
