AMEE explorer receives 2010 Best of What’s New Award from Popular Science

Best of What's New Award, Popular ScienceDescribing it as “the smartest carbon calculator,” Popular Science honored AMEE explorer with a prestigious 2010 Best of What’s New Award in the Green Tech category.

“For 23 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us − those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what’s possible in the future.” said Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. “The Best of What’s New Award is the magazine’s top honor, and the 100 winners − chosen from among thousands of entrants − represent the highest level of achievement in their fields.”

Each year, the editors of Popular Science review thousands of products in search of the top 100 tech innovations of the year; breakthrough products and technologies that represent a significant leap in their categories.

Popular Science describes AMEE’s original product, a set of APIs aggregating thousands of carbon calculation methodologies and emissions factors into the definitive carbon platform, as a “sophisticated but impenetrable programming tool.” We hope that it’s not impenetrable to the software systems that today are using AMEE to store, track, and analyze reams of emissions data, but point taken — the APIs are not easily accessed by the non-programmer.

AMEE explorer changes that, offering up a comprehensive, searchable index of carbon calculators, methodologies, standards, emissions factors, benchmarks, and life cycle data — essentially anything you might need to measure and monitor the environmental footprint of a product, individual, or organization. AMEE explorer brings the power of the AMEE database to the layperson, making fully transparent the information that will drive the carbon economy.
