Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
The weighed campus users are counted only for the Gongguan Campus, one of the three campuses of NTNU. The inventory of GHS emission of OP 1 was limited to the Gongguan Campus. The NTNU is located in the down town area of Taipei city and its GHS emission is mainly from imported electricity (scope 2) which accounts for 98%. Therefore, the GHS emission of the NTNU can be estimated by its imported electricity multiply discharge coefficient of Taiwan-Power Company (0.533kg/kWh).
