Ambee, a climate intelligence company that provides real-time actionable environmental and climate data, has launched a greenhouse gas API to track emissions at a hyperlocal level. Using Ambee’s API, companies, government agencies, administrators and ESG stakeholders can easily obtain near real-time data on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their immediate vicinity.
Greenhouse gases existed in the atmosphere at relatively stable levels for thousands of years until the development of industrial processes. After industrialization, greenhouse gas levels increased at an unprecedented rate. This sudden increase in GHG concentrations intensified the greenhouse effect, pushing it beyond its natural limits. Rising greenhouse gas emissions trap heat in the atmosphere and change the climate. Rising temperatures increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as heat waves, floods, forest fires, etc. The only way to minimize these events is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To do this, the first step is to become aware of how much we emit. Ambee’s Greenhouse Gas API helps companies quantify emissions and alert their customers to the level of emissions in their environment.
With Ambee’s GHG API, a user can understand the levels of greenhouse gases present in the atmosphere at particular geographic coordinates. In addition to global daily coverage of greenhouse gas data, it also provides information on carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapour, methane (CH4) and ozone (O3).
Commenting on the new launch, Chandrashekar D, Vice President of Engineering, Ambee, said: “Countries around the world have been reporting emissions data for decades. However, there are still many gaps in terms of access to the right data and the expertise required to quantify emissions. There is a great unmet need for accurate, hyperlocal GHG data on a global scale. Our goal is to meet this need through our GHG API.
“Ambee uses raw data from multiple Earth observation satellites, which we then combine with information from our ground sensors. This information is generated from our learnings collected from the proprietary devices we have deployed in Mumbai. These proprietary devices deployed in various critical locations in Mumbai are the foundation of the research that underpins Ambee’s GHG API,” adds Chandrashekar.
Ambee Greenhouse Gas API Use Cases
Companies, institutions and global governments can use Ambee’s GHG API to implement national policies related to the management of greenhouse gas emissions. The data can be used to set GHG reduction targets in different departments.
Companies can also assess their climate risks and opportunities through GHG data. The GHG dataset can help companies track and benchmark their internal greenhouse gas emissions, identify pollution reduction opportunities, reduce energy waste and save money.
Cities can use Ambee’s GHG API to find high emission points in a particular region, compare information between similar facilities, and develop unified climate policies.
