国际能源署(IEA)项目,每年节省的燃油加仑150,000

1月8,2013 | By | 回复 更多

燃料实验地图,标线从几乎整整一年过去了,这个项目只是一个概念到完成安装,但它终于发生了。 这个项目是完整的环境影响预测,这将保存30,000-150,000的加仑的汽油,每年减少二氧化碳气体的排放量每年由600,000-3,000,000磅。

这开始作为一个想法,事情发展期超过一年的时间,许多信徒出来,并改变了它从一个想法到一个愿景,然后变成现实。 虽然我投入了大量的时间,是绝对不可能做到这一点没有一个伟大的很多人的帮助和时间。

背景:
路口的交通道岔

其中一个的新道岔下降取舍,符号让辍学权衡的。

几乎3,100学生,管理人员和教师的驱动器或驱动从我校的每一天。 有没有公​​交车。 当然,也有少数学生步行,骑自行车和拼车的,​​但不是每个学生在一个单独的汽车到达和离开。 这与19年的历史创造了一个主要的交通问题前,每年放学后约180天。 大部分车辆小兵,因为它斗成一个单一的通往下一个比较显着的和陡峭的山坡前,然后在我的学生面前终止。 蠕变的汽车可以持续只要15分钟。 然后一车必须研磨返回的途中陡峭的山坡后落乘客。

那么,什么是这个的问题呢? 一个宝贵的时间浪费15分钟的等待在交通,穿对车辆的燃料消耗大得惊人,一个令人难以置信的大量的二氧化碳气体的排放量,以及全球气候变暖。

解决方案:

解决的方法是相当简单的。 为什么未安装交通投票,在山顶和之前的漏斗,离开五分钟步行到学校,帮助增加血液流向大脑和学生提供了一些学生的唯一运动,他们会整天? 但是,这会交通投票解决这个问题,如果是这样,我们怎么能采取这种 概念完整的解决方案?

我知道这样的解决方案的成本钱。 但参加许多城市的规划会议,我已经知道加州议会法案2766,*这样的项目,将减少二氧化碳气体的排放量,提供资金,因此资金的安装不应该是一个问题。 我也知道,这个概念与绿色城市计划Aliso Viejo的,适应良好,这可能被视为符合“学校的安全路线“计划的城市。

*加利福尼亚州议会法案2766(AB2766),签署成为法律1990,允许车辆注册附加费,将用于向项目,减少汽车废气的零排放汽车,自行车道,行程减少计划。 基金也可用于相关规划,监测,执法和技术方面的研究。 基金提供给公共机构

步骤如下:
  1. As an intern for the city of Aliso Viejo, I had access to individuals who I could go to in order to pitch such an idea. So I scheduled a meeting to see if there would be interest or an instant ‘no”. It turns out that there was interest.

  2. I had to design an experiment and perform analysis to see how this might reduce fuel consumption and gas emissions. For this, I was fortunate enough to be able to consult with one of our International Energy Alliance advisors, Robert G. Tryon, PhD, to help come up with the experiment design. I also consulted with my Aliso Niguel High School AP Physics teacher, Robert Jansen. The design involved driving up the hill while video recording my instantaneous MPH and instantaneous fuel consumption. I realized while performing the analysis that it’s really a pseudo instantaneous fuel consumption since the fuel consumption display really updates every two seconds. The video, research and analysis can be viewed by clicking on the links at the bottom of this article. In the analysis I had projected that perhaps ten percent of the school population might opt to use this traffic turnout solution, which would yield a savings of 30,000 gallons of gasoline and a reduction of 600,000 pounds of carbon gas emissions.
  3. In another meeting with the city I presented my results. At this meeting, the city then expressed concerns and reasons for why the solution could be a problem. But there was still interest and so the city and I each went off to figure out how to address and dissolve the concerns.
  4. It was time to get the matter brought before the city board members in an official manner so that if this project moved forward, they will have heard of it already. So I pitched the idea at a public board meeting. I was not asking for a decision, but instead brought the problem to their attention and let them know that solutions were being working on. Turns out the board members seemed happy to hear of this potential solution since their own children attend my high school and they experience the traffic problem themselves every day.
  5. In yet another meeting with the city there was more discussion of concerns and solutions. But some issues still remained, and so again, we went off looking for more solutions.
  6. From my experience in government positions, I realize that decision makers like to be able to support their decisions with the knowledge that they are doing what the public wants. So I approached my high school principal with the idea of directly petitioning the target population on school premises during the one time of the year when everyone has to visit the school –registration at the beginning of the school year. Our school principal very graciously granted me and my Aliso Niguel High School Energy Club permission to petition on school property during registration hours. My club and I managed to secure about 1,600 signatures in favor of the traffic turnout idea over a period of five days.
  7. I had another meeting with the city to show the petition results and further discuss solutions for the concerns.
  8. In a final meeting with all of the decision makers diagrams were brought out and discussion ensued. In attendance were my high school principal, Chris Carter, my high school activities director, Manoj Mahindrakar, the Aliso Viejo City Manager, Mark Pulone, the Aliso Viejo Director of City Planning, Albert Armijo, the city of Aliso Viejo Engineer, Shaun Pelletier, and the Lieutenant from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Bob Osborne. In the end, it was decided that this was an idea that would work and that there should not be only one turnout, but instead four new traffic turnouts at the top of the hill.
  9. 资金,然后固定和征求出价安装。 上周,在我们的学校寒假,道岔安装。
  10. 最后一步将是启动的信息的活动,以确保人们知道这些道岔。 然后,我们需要把一个反馈机制的地方,看看有什么人认为,我们需要测量的结果。
结论:
1,600签名的请愿书IEA项目

1,600家长和学生签名有利于交通投票。

起初,我预计可节省约30,000加仑的燃料,每年减少约600,000磅的碳气体。 但在接受1,600新的交通投票的请愿书上签名后,我意识到,真正的节约可能高达每年150,000加仑的燃料,减少到3,000,000磅的碳气体。

在个人层面上,这个项目让我用三个技能,我一直以来开发的第七级的方式,这将有助于我的社区我想用相结合的政治和立法方面的知识和经验,数学分析技巧,以及环境知识解决现实生活中的问题,这将有助于保护我们的未来。
