Do you want to know how big is the impact that you are causing in the environment?
Getting started: Configuration
First of all, let's go to Settings --> Carbon Emissions. There, you must create new Carbon Emissions conversion factors.
As introduced before, there are many Emission types to choose (all listed in the picture below).
In the following picture, you can see:
2. Value of the Carbon Conversion Factor
3. The option of adding new periods with other Carbon Conversion Factors to the same Emission type
4. The option of adding new emission types for the same Energy Source
Once you have this configured, you have to assign these Carbon Emissions to the devices that you want in the Locations where they are assigned. To do this, you have to go to Settings --> Locations and choose the desired location.
You will see that a new tab will have appeared called Assign carbon emission factors. Once you click on it, you will see:
1. Available devices in the location
2. Carbon Emission previously created
To assign the Location's devices to each Carbon Emission, you just have to drag and drop from 1 to 2.
Once everything is set up, the next step is to recalculate the values for the Carbon emissions for the period that you desire.
To do that, you will have to go back to Settings --> Carbon Emissions and click on Recalculation. You will see then a screen like the picture below.
Here, you will have to select the devices for which you want to recalculate the Carbon Emissions and the period for which you want to do it.
Once you do this, you will have to accept the DPs generated by the App for each emission type in the gateway of each device (settings --> gateways --> devices)·
Note: Is important to know that the values are calculated once a day, at 3 am in the morning.
This screen is similar to the Consumption screen, you can see here for each Energy source and Emission type the devices that have data in a certain period and with 3 available frequencies: daily, weekly and monthly.
Besides this, on the same screen, you can see a table with the Total, Average, Median, Max and Min emissions.
