NZero’s comprehensive platform helps governments and agencies jumpstart their strategic plans and expedite decarbonization across their portfolio, while communicating progress to stakeholders and maximizing value per dollar spent.

Federal agencies and state and city governments around the country too often rely on manual data entry and spreadsheets to capture energy and emissions data – systems that are subject to human error, are inefficient in resource allocation and are slow. 

NZero automates the ingestion of energy consumption data by the hour, by asset, then enriches and standardizes it to bring emissions and costs across an entire building portfolio seamlessly into view. Continuously track across scopes and points in time for the most accurate and complete view of your carbon footprint.

Climate programs often lack the granularity needed to produce actionable insights, necessitating additional consultants or full-time employees for off-platform analysis.

NZero’s advanced machine-learning models can predict annual or hourly electric and natural gas emissions using metadata streams for building type, square footage, location and even equipment and operating behavior. With the addition of actual consumption data (monthly or annual), our platform can deliver assessments that target high priority buildings so administrators can create a hierarchy of intervention and investment to expedite capital deployment and decarbonization.

At no additional cost, NZero pulls Scopes 1-3 emissions data compliant with the most stringent standards. Get ahead of climate disclosures, public reporting and budget requests by exporting data in just one click.

Quantify and share energy consumption and building performance all while ensuring an audit-ready data trail is available when you need it.

Governments that track their emissions and share them with their constituents give other states, industries and even their voters a blueprint of what best-in-class looks like. With NZero platform and services, policymakers get the data validation they need for policy proposals, ROI modeling for investments, performance contract reviews, procurement management and ASHRAE audits. See how a better understanding of your emissions profile means better decarbonization plans and leadership on the defining issue of our time.

Emissions Tracking

Measuring across scopes

  • Scope 1

    NZero calculates Scope 1 GHG emissions in strict adherence to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP).

    Activity and energy consumption data are gathered through direct feeds from utilities, APIs or SFTP connections. In cases where full automation is not feasible, NZero collaborates with you to establish data upload channels, streamlining processes and minimizing manual efforts. 

    We implement a continuous plan for integrating data into the NZero system, ensuring a robust and auditable path for compliance reporting and transparency.

  • Scope 2

    NZero specializes in the accurate tracking and calculation of Scope 2, delivering location-based and market-based inventories and ensuring adherence to GHGP Scope 2 Guidance. This ensures compliance with dual reporting requirements and enables companies to spotlight their financial energy market activities.

    We employ an advanced grid study which considers the seasonal, daily and hourly variation in location-based emissions factors to provide a more accurate and detailed measurement. The grid study uses facility-specific and resource-specific data that is matched to actual generation dispatch and linked to the time of consumption. We also offer customers flexibility in choosing different emission factor sets, such as the annual eGRID factors, to be applied to their data as desired.

  • Scope 3

    The GHGP outlines 15 categories of Scope 3 emissions, and NZero provides assistance in tracking each of these categories tailored to your business operations.

    Our methodology starts with a Scope 3 materiality assessment and a workshop dedicated to creating a Scope 3 data collection roadmap with internal stakeholders. We collaborate with your team to identify and collect Scope 3 data, creating essential tools such as online surveys, automated integrations and educational resources. 

Our clients

As we continue to battle drought, diminishing water supplies and wildfires across the West, we are reminded daily of how critical our fight is to slow climate change. NZero’s innovative technology can help us accurately measure and track our carbon emissions and work to reduce them. I hope other government agencies as well as major companies employ the technology required to track emissions. Collectively, we can work to measure and reduce our carbon output and help to save the planet.

Success Story

How 'The Biggest Little City in the World' Made Sustainability a Top Priority

Reno's temperatures are rising more quickly than any city in the United States since the 1970s. In the face of this challenge, the City of Reno created a robust 2019-2025 Climate Action Plan, setting a 2025 goal to reduce greenhouse gas emission by 28% from 2008 levels. Read how NZero and 24/7 emissions tracking helped officials understand and capture their entire carbon footprint, and what they could do about it.
