Utility Carbon Management
Our utility clients are now setting progressive zero carbon emissions goals that align well with industry and national priorities for combatting climate change. We are partnering with clients to develop the strategies and programs needed to meet aggressive carbon reduction goals while simultaneously maintaining system reliability and keeping customer costs down. We leverage sophisticated data analysis and modeling tools to identify the resource value of demand-side and distributed resource initiatives from both a system and carbon perspective and make smart resource acquisition choices.
Effective carbon planning starts with a firm understanding of site level greenhouse gas emissions. We couple experienced site level data collection methods with extensive knowledge of carbon accounting rules, regulations, and reporting requirements. Our industry-accredited engineers and consultants leverage decades of experience to develop and verify greenhouse gas emissions inventories. We excel at integrating these inventories with energy planning and enterprise management tools to make them useful to decisionmakers throughout the organization.
