Building owners are often in the dark about their carbon pollution. A new algorithm could shed light on itStarting this year, thousands of buildings in New York City will have to start reducing their carbon emissions. There are plenty of tools out there that can convert an electric bill into estimated carbon emissions, but many are based on rough estimates. It’s why Nzero, a carbon-tracking startup, developed a new algorithm, giving building owners reports that estimate carbon pollution down to the hour. From there, the company’s software helps building owners identify upgrades and retrofits that will reduce emissions while also being the most cost effective.
