Energy and Emissions Management

SAS® Energy and Emissions Management

Reduce time, risk and complexity of carbon footprint analyses

SAS Energy and Emissions Management models business processes to determine emissions and energy consumption, their cost and what drives them.

It helps organizations identify reduction strategies that make sense for the business while ensuring that the resources required and the effect of change are understood. The solution offers integrated data management, business modeling, reporting and analysis.

Benefits

Know your organization's carbon footprint.

SAS Energy and Emissions Management structures data at the most detailed level available (meter or asset) so that it can be rolled up into divisions, regions or operating units. This allows you to understand energy consumption and the carbon footprint of your organization, from top to bottom. SAS aggregates consumption variables and calculates associated emissions for you. With this comprehensive information, you can present transparent accounting for energy and emissions, providing an audit trail with the source of emissions factors used in the calculations.

Predict resource and capacity needs.

As you explore alternative scenarios with SAS, you will need to adjust your resources to attain your goals. SAS consumption-driven modeling methods allow you to predict the resource implications of proposed changes, and integrated cost analytics give insight into the financial impact of initiatives.

Model alternative sustainability projects and quantify their effect on achieving corporate objectives.

Resource modeling is the new paradigm that reveals the insights necessary for decision making – some­thing spreadsheets and similar tools have difficulty doing. SAS estab­lishes a multidimensional carbon model made up of many attributes that act as analysis variables. You can adjust analysis vari­ables (square footage, headcount, fuel type) and then run the model engine to quantify the corresponding change in energy consumed or emissions generated. Scenarios can be saved for future reference. An unlimited number of scenarios can be modeled for a full understanding of the opportunities and liabilities of proposed sustainability projects, both individually and as a col­lective. And it can be used to quantify the change in GHG emissions resulting from a proposed project.

Access global standards, rates and consumption factors through our trusted partner, AMEE.

Partnering with AMEE as a neutral aggregator of emissions and energy information, SAS is able to provide a prebuilt data integration package that automatically maps emissions source information into the SAS Energy and Emissions Management solution. This virtually eliminates the maintenance of custom data integration projects associated with aggregating public emissions information manually. The SAS solution includes a data extraction engine customized for AMEE's Web service (API). AMEE provides comprehensive coverage of the most important data, methodologies and standards spanning 150 countries and regions, for calculating GHG emissions across a spectrum of emission-causing scenarios.

Simplify data collection, improve data quality and provide an auditable record to support compliance needs.

With SAS, you can automatically extract, transform and cleanse virtually any data, in any format, on any platform. Once set up, the solution provides a complete audit of how data is used. Schedule the collection of data to meet your needs – monthly, weekly or even daily. Powerful analytics identify questionable data to address quality issues before you add data to models or reports.
