Carbon Manager™ Wins Product of the Year 2023 Sustainability Award

Sustainability Award

Carbon Manager™ has clinched the prestigious Sustainability Product of the Year Award in the 2023 Sustainability Awards program organized by the Business Intelligence Group. The Sustainability Awards honor companies who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice, and Phoenix Energy Technologies has received this recognition for empowering businesses to achieve greater insight into their carbon footprint and drive data-informed decisions toward a greener, more sustainable future.

As one of the only software providers that can integrate with any legacy control system to collect, analyze, and action against data, Phoenix saw an opportunity to innovate with Carbon Manager. “We recognize that our customers have choices when it comes to their carbon reporting system of record, but what they are not getting today is a diagnostic tool that can pinpoint specific equipment, such as HVAC or refrigeration, which have an outsized impact on the customer’s Scope 2 CO2 footprint, and can be optimized to drive that CO2 number down, ” said Ryan Adelman, Vice President at Phoenix. “Carbon Manager is equal parts a reporting tool and a carbon diagnostics tool, enabling the user to make decisions about locations and equipment that present the most cost-effective carbon mitigation opportunity.”

Features of Carbon Manager V2.0 include:

Visual Trending of Performance: Carbon Manager V2.0 introduces the ability to visually trend performance over both long-term and short-term periods, enabling businesses to gain a comprehensive understanding of their energy consumption and carbon emissions with these views:

  • Long-Term Monthly Trends: Carbon Manager now offers insights into carbon emission (Metric Tons of CO2), energy usage (kWh), and associated costs ($) on a monthly basis, allowing companies to track progress over extended periods and identify trends in consumption.
  • Short-Term Hourly Trends: In addition, businesses can now monitor carbon emissions (Metric tons CO2), energy usage (kWh), and grid intensity (MOER) on an hourly basis. This granular data empowers organizations to pinpoint usage patterns and optimize operations for peak efficiency.

Drill-through to store-level BAS issue/performance data: Carbon Manager V2.0 goes even further in providing actionable insights with the introduction of drill-through capabilities to store-level Building Automation System (BAS) issue/performance data for enhanced store-level insights. Organizations can now identify and address issues such as runtime outliers, setpoint outliers, and alarms that contribute to a larger carbon footprint. This feature is particularly impactful for stores with the highest size-normalized carbon footprint, enabling targeted interventions that yield significant environmental benefits.

“We are proud to reward and recognize Phoenix Energy Technologies' Carbon Manager for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group.  “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world.  Congratulations!”
