Dear Angelo Peterson, My name is Bruno Gomes and I am the designated Impact Assessment Fellow for this proposal. You can learn more about me on the Climate CoLab website. My role with the Climate CoLab is to help you to quantify the climate impact of your proposal, or in other words the CO2-equivalent emissions reduction. This will help you answer the contest question: “How much will emissions be reduced or sequestered vs. business-as-usual levels?” You can then input your results into the Impact Tab of your proposal. The first step is for me to perform a preliminary screening. Depending on the size and complexity of the proposal, I may work with you in developing a detailed model or allow you to work yourself using our methodology. During this collaboration I will use my technical background as well as modeling tools. If I work with you on a detailed model: Since you are most knowledgeable about your proposal, I may reach out to you periodically to obtain assumptions and data associated with your proposal. Should you feel the assumptions used by Impact Assessment Fellows do not accurately depict the impact of your proposal, feel free to discuss this with us and update your model. If you develop a model yourself: We have provided resources on the Climate CoLab website to help you calculate the CO2e impact of your proposal. Here are some links: • Assessing the impact of your proposal or plan • Methodology for Sector/Basic proposals • Methodology for Regional and Global plans Looking forward to collaborating with you on your proposal on climate change! Best, Bruno

Thank you Bruno, and could use help as I am not very computer literate.
