Cornell has a gas-fired combined heat and power plant. The goal is to be carbon neutral in 2035 by aggressive energy conservation, and the conversion to all renewable heat, cooling and electricity. Solar farms are being built, and deep direct use geothermal is being explored. In the interim, the carbon intensity (lbCO2/MWh) of CHP power is compared to the grid to inform equipment dispatch. This involves assessing the real time carbon intensity of the grid.
