Hourly carbon accounting provides the closest emissions estimation to actual emissions, capturing the variations in carbon intensity across daily and seasonal cycles. In other words, the emissions associated with using electricity at 1pm are different from those associated with using it at 1am. Measuring emissions at this granular level provides the most relevant and actionable GHG emissions data, helping to inform targeted demand-side actions and assisting in any decision-making process for the reporting organization and its stakeholders.
Hourly emission factors are the only way electricity emission data is comparable and responsive to decision-maker needs and available on timescales relevant to decision-making. Equipped with hourly, time-of-use data allows real estate operations to truly understand and reduce their Scope 2 impact and costs– and it ensures accurate reporting to stakeholders.
NZero's Advanced Grid Modeling Technology
The NZero Carbon Accounting and Management Platform is a cloud-based solution that optimizes building performance by providing automatic, hyper-granular emissions data and insights across all three scopes.
NZero is also the only solution capable of providing time-of-use emissions data to designed to meet the PCAF, CRREM, and GRESB technical guidance.
NZero utilizes advanced grid modeling technology to gather accurate hourly energy consumption data directly from a customer's utility or meter and pairs it with hourly emission factors. This allows for more precise hourly intervals and more accurate emission factors for each hour, 24/7 hours a day. NZero also uses the best-available emission factors for other sources of emissions, such as vehicles, natural gas, employee travel, waste, and more.
The platform enables customers to gain a deeper understanding of their buildings' carbon emissions and real-time energy usage, empowering them to make data-driven decisions to reduce their carbon footprint, operational costs, and compliance risks.
Streamlining Data Collection And Reporting
With NZero, data collection becomes a seamless process. Our platform automates data collection across your real estate operation, saving you time, money, and resources. As a result, you can focus on what really matters: decarbonizing, capital planning, reducing operational costs, and mitigating reporting and compliance risk.
One standout feature of NZero's platform is the GRESB data export, allowing you to easily export your entire real estate operation’s portfolio emissions data in a pre-formatted CSV. This eliminates the need for manual data gathering, calculations, and formatting, streamlining your reporting process and making it as easy as a click of a button.
Compliance and Transparency
Our reports are built to align with the GHG Protocol and future proof you for SEC regulations. They’re consistent with TCFD, GRESB, CDP, SASB, and GRI standards, ensuring 100% compliance to leading reporting frameworks and guidelines. Our real-time data and easy reporting tools empower your team to accurately build and communicate your carbon initiatives, avoiding greenwashing and promoting transparency.
NZero is the partner for real estate operations, preparing customers for a greener, more cost-effective, and compliant future. Our comprehensive carbon accounting and management platform is the only solution that meets the PCAF, CRREM, and GRESB joint guidance for calculating and reporting Scope 2 emissions. Our platform improves emission modeling and calculations and improves reporting–so organizations can efficiently reduce emissions, costs, and risk.
