Improvements to the Infrastructure Carbon Estimator (ICE)

The project intends to make the following improvements to the Infrastructure Carbon Estimator (ICE) tool, based on stakeholder feedback: (1) incorporate new research on infrastructure embodied energy and lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions; (2) add analysis of new/additional project types; (3) address greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from additional mitigation strategies; (4) tailor outputs to better address the energy and GHG emissions from transportation project alternatives and transportation plans; and (5) make the interface more intuitive and easier to use.
