How Dijon became the 1st city to monitor CO2 emissions in real time
Dijon is not only the capital of the famous French Burgundy wine region, but also one of the leading European cities tackling climate change.
In 2021, Dijon was selected along 100 cities by the European Commission to join its NetZeroCities initiative, aiming at reaching climate neutrality by 2030.
The city had an ambitious climate plan but did not have a precise and cost effective way to track their carbon emissions.
Like many cities, Dijon was also looking for capital to finance their emission reductions plans.
In February 2022, Everimpact installed 75 ground sensors across the city. Through Everimpact’s platform, the emissions data collected from these sensors is combined with satellite and AI, to measure, in near real-time, the carbon emissions linked to mobility, industry, buildings and waste facilities.
Everimpact is currently preparing the monetisation of this certified data through trusted carbon markets.
Dijon has become the world’s first city to track both live air quality and CO2 emissions in real time.
Dijon is also the first city to monetise its CO2 emissions data to access climate finance, with an estimated €1M revenue potential over the next 5 years and an additional 9 MtCO2 to be reduced and monetised by 2050.
Direct measurement of carbon emissions onboard vessels
Understanding carbon emissions of vessels is increasingly important as new stringent environmental regulations kick in. Current available information relies on calculations to estimate these emissions with little cross-check with what has actually been emitted.
As an example Vespucci Maritime simulated with 4 different carriers the carbon emissions of a cargo using the same vessel and the same route. The returned results were inconsistent, the highest estimate being 3 times than the lowest estimate.
Direct measurement of carbon emissions increases trust in data, mitigates reporting and financial risks, provides insights on the effectiveness of energy-efficiency measures and supports the financing of decarbonisation projects.
Everimpact is partnering with eight maritime and supply chain leaders through an engineering collaboration and a seed finance round to bring its carbon measuring solution onboard commercial vessels and ports.
IoT sensors installed on the exhaust stacks of ships will capture actual CO2 data, which will be visible live through an online dashboard.
The solution is trialed on a Mitsubishi Corporation Group vessel and is available through our Early Adopter Program.
Accurate and real-time carbon emissions measurements
Automated, independant and trusted reporting.
Reliable data to define CCI rating and EU ETS tax amount
Monitoring effectiveness of emissions reductions(CO2 and methane)
Certified data to access premium carbon markets.
“We believe this project will help transform the maritime industry into one that is more transparent and reliable for carbon emission monitoring and reporting. This solution offers great potential for the industry at large to create value for supply chains around the world."
