Johnson Controls has launched an enhanced Energy and Emissions Management System, which provides global organizations with the capability to analyze energy trends and calculate greenhouse gas levels. It measures, manages and forecasts activities related to energy cost, consumption, energy efficiency projects, fleet emissions, and waste. Organizations can receive easy-to-understand, auditable reports to validate incoming data.
Delivered by Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions, the Energy and Emissions Management System is web-based and incorporates an advanced management software programs designed to meet greenhouse gas emission reporting standards, according to Groom Energy Solutions, a renewable and energy efficiency service provider.
The system currently manages US$1 billion of annual energy spending and annually monitors 63 million metric tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions for 5,000 buildings located in 88 countries. Over the last eight years, the system has captured more than 8,000 energy and cost savings initiatives – nearly half of which were achieved for global companies including Pfizer, Wyeth, Dell and Xerox – resulting in savings of US$1 billion and 6.2 million metric tons of CO2 or the equivalent.
The Energy and Emissions Management System is a user-friendly global platform that includes international support of data entry. Reports can be generated in four languages, numerous currencies and units of measure. In addition, a greenhouse gas inventory module automates carbon accounting based on the World Research Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development GHG Protocol. The GHG module consolidates all sources of greenhouse gas emissions, baseline adjustments, and credit trading impacts to generate a transparent, verifiable greenhouse gas inventory.
