New from Alibaba Cloud, Energy Expert is a sustainability platform to help customers worldwide measure, analyse and manage the carbon emissions of their business activities and products. The software- as-a-service offering also provides actionable insights and energy saving recommendations to help customers accelerate their sustainability journeys.
The initiative is aligned with Alibaba’s carbon neutrality pledge, which was unveiled last year.
Energy Expert helps customers automate the carbon accounting and reporting process at a corporate and product level and obtain real-time sustainability impact statistics for them to make informed decisions. It enables customers to identify the sources of the carbon emissions from their daily business activities as well as the full life cycle of their products, based on the PAS 2060 and ISO 14064 standards on carbon neutrality.
Customers can also quantify their carbon footprint through a prebuilt calculation model leveraging public emission factors datasets and Energy Expert’s proprietary datasets. Additionally, it provides visibility into their real-time carbon emission patterns and the progress of their sustainability performance through visualisations on dashboards and online reports.
