Carbon has become a word that is used most often to denote global warming and pollution. The word carbon has become a vulgar word in modern society, often being portrayed in a negative light. The goal of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been to put a stop to Carbon, and its other gaseous Greenhouse friends, for the past 40 years. Many different methods and practices have been put in place to slow down or stop the emission of carbon dioxide, the by-product of burning fossil fuels. From the implementation of Renewable Energy Standards to the discussion of taxes or fines on carbon; everything has been considered. One method commonly used to reduce Carbon from entering the atmosphere is called Carbon Capture Sequestration or Storage abbreviated CCS.
CCS takes the carbon that would have entered into the atmosphere and redirects it to other sources, such as underground caverns or bacteria filled ponds. CCS does not result in less Carbon being produced; it merely results in less carbon entering the atmosphere. Unfortunately, negative side effects still exist in the form of polluted aquifers, soil and water. The EPA has decided to further restrict Carbon, even the carbon sequestered by CCS practices. Those participating in CCS now must account for all the carbon emitted and store and must assure the water surrounding them is safe from contamination often associated with CCS. Until completely renewable technology is available and viable for businesses something needs to be done to lessen the burden on those responsible for accounting all the carbon within the CCS process.
Continuous Energy Management and Optimization (CEMO) grants users the ability to monitor and manage anything that can be metered all on a comprehensive easy to read web-based dashboard. The information the CEMO system monitors will be stored on an external database that can be accessed from anywhere at any time making carbon accounting as easy as a few clicks of the mouse. The CEMO system has the ability to be customized according to the user’s needs. Anything that can be metered, can be monitored and measure, if you cannot measure it you cannot control it. With the CEMO system monitoring and controlling your CCS no longer needs to occupy all of your time.
