About Carbon Counter | Monitoring CO2e
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.
A key feature of the service is that data can be gathered from any smart hardware / utility meter.
Technologies used include conventional data loggers, integrated modems / smart meters and LoRaWAN pulse counters.
The Carbon Counter 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 independently. 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 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.
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
