Our Vision

Unlocking in power of electricity emissions data

Achieving net zero emissions by mid-century is crucial to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. Companies are responsible for a significant portion of global electricity emissions, with purchased energy accounting for an average of 43% of their total emissions. Our vision is to bring the most reliable and actionable electricity data, that allows drastically reducing this number.
