AMEE goes free and easy

Happy New Year!

I want to thank all of AMEE’s users, customers and partners for their support over the past year, share some highlights, and key announcements.

AMEE is now free. We strongly believe Environmental Intelligence – Everywhere means being accessible and ubiquitous, lowering barriers to entry, and stimulating innovation. This means developers can build more great apps, consultants can help their clients, teachers can help their students, and everyone can engage in helping to footprint everything!

To aid this we have also launched Ask AMEE, our computational search engine, making it easy to do calculations and discover answers, are hosting our first hackathon in London January 28th – 29th at University College London.

Join us at this unique event to engage our sustainability and developer communities around innovation.

– BP’s 2012 Olympics Target Neutral initiative
— Sun Edison and Bergen Energi (embedding AMEE intelligence into energy efficiency technology)
