Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) -
greenhouse gas inventory software program

Purpose

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a priority for most Dormitory Authority customers. But before reductions can be made, a baseline has to be set. An innovative software program can tell clients a building’s current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. DASNY worked collaboratively with one of its largest clients, the City University of New York (CUNY) to develop a greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory software program that can be fully integrated into a customer’s building management and information technology systems.

The program calculates the GHG emissions a facility is producing based on the amount of fuel(s) burned and electricity usage. It also factors in things like employees’ commuting habits. The system then generates reports in two globally recognized formats. The program can be used either with an established baseline entered in the system to compare present emissions to past emissions or it can be used to create a baseline, making comparisons to future data as it is added.

DASNY (Dormitory Authority of the State of New York) is one of the largest public financing and public construction authorities in the nation.
