The web services associated with some spreadsheet packages actually is very useful in enterprise carbon accounting
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
Western Renewable Energy Analysts Inc. (WREA Inc.), a company specializing in calculating, tracking and reporting carbon footprints for large industrial sectors, released an update for carbon accounting to exchange data using social media, such as Twitter, using OAUTH level authentication to disseminate and capture data. WREA reports that contrary to misinformation being spread in the media by technically unsophisticated persons representing themselves as analysts, using spreadsheets efficiently is actually helpful in enterprise carbon accounting. The company is reporting that it is also offering such products to power plants, utilities and other large stationary source combustion facilities. In addition, automatic GHG management products and services will be offered for building energy management as well as for factory and warehouse energy management.
Mr. Scott Foster, President and CEO of WREA, said “It was amusing to read that someone thought that keeping format control for data in spreadsheets was a big problem. Spreadsheets are a great help in gathering and processing data. With new collaboration features and work flow tracking being made possible, this adds more power. However, after processing all this data, for storage of the data, I would store it elsewhere and use just XML containers or a database. Clearly though, spreadsheets have an important role to play and we offer strict format control for the latest platforms for spreadsheets.” Laughing, he added “In all my years in the energy sector, this is first time I have encountered somebody calling themselves an analyst and having a problem with data format control. In the green rush, everyone is claiming to be an expert or an analyst or some kind of guru”
WREA is focusing its efforts on enterprises and companies with large carbon footprints in an effort to lower them. WREA is a reseller of EMSPRO(TM), the environmental management systems software that performs GHG inventories, and has automates the capturing of data using web services.

This coupled with the years of experience its principals have in the energy sector, power generation and transmission, will be used to effectively market these products and services.
