Carbon Estates

Carbon Estates is a Web-based energy efficiency benchmarking and virtual simulation tool designed specifically for the built environment. It enables users to save money, reduce carbon, and comply with Carbon Reduction Commitment, a mandatory government scheme in the United Kingdom that is responsible for abating carbon emissions from buildings.

The system incorporates asset and operational building data and gives users a total picture of how an estate is performing. The simulation and forecasting functionality enables users to implement carbon- and energy-saving projects in a virtual environment to accurately model improvements and optimize spending in a risk-free environment.
