Abstract in another language

Amidst the pressing need to combat climate change and curb carbon emissions, the building sector emerges as a pivotal sector, making a substantial impact on worldwide emissions. Despite efforts to improve energy efficiency and incorporate non-fossil energy sources, the sector still lags behind in achieving the necessary decarbonization goals. Existing Energy Management Systems (EMS) primarily prioritize economic criteria, overlooking the vital aspect of emissions reduction. Information Systems (IS) hold the potential to bridge this gap by enabling precise and verifiable carbon emissions accounting, end-to-end real-time tracking, and automated certification within EMS. This paper presents a research initiative aimed at designing an Energy Emission Management System (EEMS) for the building sector. The central research question revolves around how to design EEMS to facilitate emission-based actions. Following the Design Science Research (DSR) approach, this study seeks to provide a conceptual framework and design principles for EEMS, contributing to the existing body of knowledge by focusing on the building sector. The research methodology encompasses a comprehensive literature review, expert input through a research workshop, and iterative evaluation with industry experts. The anticipated contributions include a theoretical EEMS model, expanded system functionalities, and generalizable design principles for future EEMS development. Ultimately, this research strives to facilitate end-to-end verifiable carbon emissions management and to effectively avoid double counting or greenwashing respectively in the building sector.
