The EnergyPoints™ platform is designed to operationalize environmental performance. The technology is based on advanced mathematical algorithms, combined with big data to convert resource consumption such as water, electricity, transportation, materials and waste into a single unifying energy metric. EnergyPoints enables organizations to calculate and communicate their environmental performance as well as optimize their capital and operational expenses in a way that is simple to understand, accurate and actionable.
The accurate conversion of all resources to energy is based on calculating the exact efficiency in each specific location and time – analogous to a car mpg. This is coupled with a unique life cycle assessment that captures the efficiency of the entire resource network (demand and supply sides). For example electricity efficiency is based on the actual electricity mix behind every plug. Water is calculated using the energy invested in water adjusted for local scarcity. Material is based on the life cycle impact.
The EnergyPoints platform includes a turn-key customer data acquisition system that allows users to upload historical consumption information with ease and also have APIs that allow customers to easily input new data on an ongoing basis.
