Citations and poster data
Paper poster: between 09/12 and 09/13, UCL bought approximately 50m sheets of paper. Assuming an average paper thickness of 0.1mm, this paper would stack to a height of approximately 5000 metres.
Switch off poster: Assuming computer is energystar category 'A' and monitor is flatscreen 1280 pixels by 1024 pixels, and power rating is 0.107kW when active. Assuming computer is left on when the building is unoccupied for 14 hours (6pm-8am).
0.107kW x 14(hours) = 1.498kWh x 365(days) x 0.43kgCO2/kWh = 235.1111kgCO2/year.
235.1111 / 1.98 (conversion factor for CO2 weight to volume) = 118.74m3 CO2/year.
Estimated volume of double decker bus = 102.12m3
