Irish company ManageC02 has developed and launched what it claims is the UK’s first ‘all-in-one’ carbon management software. The cloud-based solution can track and report on an organisation’s international carbon footprint and has an energy management module that allows for real-time energy monitoring of electricity, gas and oil consumption.
This allows companies to identify high usage areas, such as data centres, lighting or specific areas within buildings, and to instantly calculate and validate the return on investment for areas of energy reduction.
The system was created in response to simplifications to the UK Government’s Carbon Reduction (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme and a gap in the market for an in all one approach to energy management.
“We’ve spent a number of years developing the software, ensuring not only that reporting complies with international standards and Government reporting regulations, including the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, but also making sure that it is simple and easy for businesses to use,” says Adrian Fleming, managing director of ManageCO2. “The key to the system is the ease of use and as far as we can tell it is the only all-in-one system available in the UK market place at the moment. Managing and reporting carbon and energy usage in a viable and transparent way is key in today’s carbon constrained economy, and we’re really excited about helping UK businesses to do this as we have done so successfully in Ireland.”
ManageC02 was founded in 2009, by Adrian Fleming, Derek Spillane and Roy Meaney, and is now recognised as one of Ireland’s leading carbon management software provider. Based in Limerick with offices in Dublin and London, ManageCO2 serves the Irish and UK public and private sectors.
