SiteWatch 360 can capture, transmit, and analyze energy-use and other engineering data to corporate managers or other users tasked with complying with a wide variety of internal and external standards and certifications. SiteWatch 360 can both import data from, and export data to, a customer's other platforms such as a Building Management System or a SCADA system.
- Energy consumption. At the core is electricity consumption, but it can include natural gas, steam, propane and oil. It's also necessary to know how the power is generated. Local utilities in the U.S. provide information about the fuel(s) they use to generate power and what the carbon content is for each fuel.
- Transportation is another major use of carbon-based fuel, which can apply to raw materials (and packaging) inbound, as well as finished goods outbound. The source of inbound materials — 5 miles away, across the country or from overseas — as well as the mode of transportation — truck, train, ship, plane — makes a huge difference to the carbon content of the finished goods.
- Waste Streams. Using a concept called "circularity", firms are required to calculate the overall impact of their hazardous and non-hazardous waste, less any waste that's recycled or otherwise recovered (i.e. not put into landfills).
