Networking Key to Mainstreaming Sustainability, AMEE Says

Interconnecting environmental data systems is the key to driving sustainability into the mainstream, according to cloud-based software provider AMEE.

Cloud-based environmental management services provide users a safe haven in which to gather data, carry out analysis, and get answers without the need for new software or infrastructure, AMEE’s Gavin Starks says, writing for Treehugger.com.

By removing the barriers associated with installing software and infrastructure, cloud-based services – such as those provided by AMEE, Power Assure and BuildingIQ – make it easier to link up different data providers, Starks says. He cites examples of the U.K.’s Energy Saving Trust and Technology Strategy Board using his company’s cloud-based product to record temperature, humidity and other data sets from hundreds of residences.

This approach shattered the silos of data coming from each house and allowed the client to “unlock value and insight” that would have been harder to garner without the connectivity, Starks says.

Cloud-based applications are catching on in a range of sustainability applications. In February, Energy Points launched what it calls the world’s first universal metric for measuring sustainability. The cloud-based reporting system converts all domains, including fuel, electricity, transportation and water, into one comparable measurement.
