Cardano Carbon Footprint

The low Carbon Footprint of Cardano was on of the main reasons why i started working with cardano. I know that Proof of Stake is way more efficient but do we have some numbers allready?
Similar to this article Ethereum Energy Consumption Index - where the CO2 Footprint per transaction is taxed to 34.63KG.


A very rough estimation would be 2500 pools, 2 relays and 1 bp mode 33.3W each => 750 kW.


I would also like to see some semi-accurate measurements/calculations to determine the entire networks carbon footprint. Once we can measure the CO2 footprint, we can offset it to become carbon neutral or better yet, carbon negative.

Great List of initiatives! - Carbon Negative … yes with the Efficiency of the network that sounds feasible.
It’s also one of the reasons why we choose to run our pool AZUL servers at a provider who is 100% on renewable energy.
