Carbon Counter | Monitoring Carbon Emissions

Data from your Energy Meters

Converted into user-friendly reports

Carbon Counter provide a data collection and reporting service for electricity, gas, renewable and water data in an Automated Monitoring and Targeting portal called Blue Skies Data View

A key feature of the service is that data can be gathered from any advanced hardware / utility meter.

Technologies used include conventional data loggers, integrated meter modems / smart meters and LoRaWAN pulse counters.

24/7 Carbon Data visualisation

Portal has been in development since 2011 and is the favoured AM&T portal for much of the UK Water Retail sector.

The portal is designed for end-users to login and view summary data. However, we know that most organisations do not track minor changes on a daily basis, so the AMT portal includes a suite of tools for Second -Level Admin users to fully track the alarms, make eye-ball reviews of all data and issue reports.

Also included is a benchmarking tool enabling different size buildings, with the same purpose (example Primary schools, Police Stations) to be compared and ranked in order of efficiency.

Using the tariff engine the payback period for building efficiency upgrades can be calculated.

The hardware agnostic approach to data enables existing data and meters to be added into the portal. Typically, half hour data is already being gathered by the water, electric and gas suppliers for network monitoring or billing. Carbon Counter will work to collect this data centrally to be visible online for our clients.

Data from your Energy Meters

Converted into Energy and Water email alerts

Each day, the incoming data is checked against agreed / expected usage, if usage is exceeded an automated email message is sent from Carbon Counter to the Facilities Manager responsible for the location. A clear visualization of carbon data.

By default, these utility use email alerts are scheduled for 09:00 so you'll have the whole day to investigate and fix the excessive electric, gas or water use

One of many Carbon Counter micro-management services helping clients to monitor and reduce the CO₂e emissions footprints around their organisations.

    Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage (CCUS) is a technology that can capture and make effective use of the high concentrations of CO₂ emitted by industrial activities. Consequently, it has a key role to play in decarbonization and the addressing the challenge of global climate change.

    Spartan UK has been using remote monitoring technology for its onsite gas sub meters for nearly two years. During this time, we have been able to identify areas for improvement and quantify the results of upgrades. The technology is unobtrusive and the data presentation easy to understand and analyse. Due to the nature of our business and size of the site we were initial concerned about signal penetration and reception, but this has not shown to be an issue. We plan to continue to use the information gathered to improve our gas efficiency, reduce our environmental impact and to justify future capex improvement projects

    CO2e, or carbon dioxide equivalent, is a standard unit for measuring carbon footprints. The idea is to express the impact of each different greenhouse gas in terms of the amount of CO₂ that would create the same amount of warming.
