⚠️
Preview Feature

This feature is currently in preview. That means that we believe the feature is good enough to start using, but:

  • There might still be bugs or edge cases we haven't covered.
  • The documentation and error messages might be less detailed.
  • We might need to make further changes in the API surface.

We need the ability to iterate quickly on preview versions, so we offer less guarantees of stability. When we make changes to the preview version, we will release a new version, and you must migrate to this new version within one month. Read more about API versioning at Climatiq here.For this reason, preview endpoints are not available without explicitly opting in. If you would like to opt-in to this preview feature, please contact us.

The energy endpoints automatically calculate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the consumed energy based on relevant emission factors. These factors are determined based on the specific type of energy and the region where it is consumed, ensuring accurate carbon footprint calculations for your organization.

This feature can be used to help businesses estimate and report their scope 1, 2 and associated scope 3 emissions under the GHG Protocol. It also meets the requirements of the SBTi and covers market-based and location-based approaches for electricity use.

For extra information about our methodology for GHG Protocol scopes 2 and 3.3 calculation, please view the scope 2 and scope 3.3 FERA guides.

Electricity use

POST Calculate the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for electricity use, including both grid electricity and direct-line electricity. This endpoint allows you to obtain accurate carbon footprint calculations for your organization's purchased electricity.

IEA data

By default the Electricity calculator uses publicly published emission factors from various official sources covering 46 countries. For greater coverage and consistency you also have the option to purchase a premium license to emission factors from the International Energy Agency (IEA) increasing coverage to 149 countries.

Request

This endpoint accepts the following parameters:

Request parametersShould be sent as a JSON object in the body

  • regionrequired string

    The region or country where the electricity was consumed, usually a country but could be US / Australian / Canadian state / province or US eGrid. A US zip code can also be provided in the format US-XXXXX

  • yearinteger

    The year for which the greenhouse gas emissions are being calculated.

    Default Value
    Latest year available
  • amountEnergy object

    The total electricity used.

    Default Value
    Sum of the components
  • recsEnergy object

    Quantity of RECs (Renewable Energy Certificates) to apply.

  • source_setstring

    Specifies which set of emission factors the caller would like to use. Valid values are core or iea

    Default Value
    "iea" if the API key used has access to the premium IEA dataset, otherwise "core"
  • componentsarray of Component objects

    An array containing the different components of the electricity consumption and their associated details.

An implied residual component will be added to make up any difference between the total amount of energy in the request and the sum of the amount of energy in each component.

Choosing a supplier

supplier's are currently only available in US states and in the United Kingdom. The suggested way to find available suppliers's is to make a request without setting a supplier (but setting amount and region) and see which suppliers are indicated as being available in the error response.

Request

curl --request POST \

"energy_unit": "kWh"
},
"supplier": ""
}
]
}'

Response

The available suppliers will depend on the region.

Batch Heat and Steam Use

POST For bulk data-processing, this endpoint has a batch endpoint variant allowing for up to 100 calculations with one API call.

The batch endpoint is available at:

https://preview.api.climatiq.io/energy/v1-preview1/heat/batch

Provide this endpoint with an array of objects, where each object is a valid body for the non-batch endpoint. See the batch endpoint documentation for more information about how batch endpoints work and how to handle errors.

Fuel Use

POST Calculate the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for fuel combustion.

https://preview.api.climatiq.io/energy/v1-preview1/fuel

Request

The request to the fuel combustion endpoint accepts the following parameters included in the request body. Except for fuel_type and amount, which must match exactly, any parameters that cannot be matched to an emission factor will be ignored, e.g. this means that the emission factors might be for a different region than you selected. In the event of a mismatch, a notice will be included in the response.

Request parametersShould be sent as a JSON object in the body

  • fuel_typerequired string

    The type of fuel burned. See choosing a fuel_type for how to choose this.

  • amountrequired Energy/Volume/Weight object

    The amount of fuel burned.

  • regionstring

    The region or country where the fuel was burned.

  • yearinteger

    The year in which the fuel was burned.

Choosing a fuel_type

fuel_type's don't currently follow the same naming convention across regions. The suggested way to find the available fuel_types is to make a request without setting the fuel_type (but setting amount and region) and see which fuel_types are indicated as being available in the error response.

Energy reporting quad

For electricity (market and location) and heat and steam, the API reports 4 estimates, one for scope 2 (consumption) emissions and each of the 3 scope 3.3 (FERA) emissions estimates:

AttributeTypeDescription
consumptionEnergy estimateEstimates of the greenhouse gas emissions that result from generating the consumed energy.
transmission_and_distributionEnergy estimateEstimates of the greenhouse gas emissions that result from generating the energy which is subsequently lost during the processes of transmission and distribution.
well_to_tankEnergy estimateEstimates of the greenhouse gas emissions that result from obtaining the fuel used for generating the consumed energy.
well_to_tank_of_transmission_and_distributionEnergy estimateEstimates of the greenhouse gas emissions that result from obtaining the fuel used for generating the energy which is subsequently lost during the processes of transmission and distribution.

Energy estimate

AttributeTypeDescription
co2efloatThe total greenhouse gas emissions associated with the consumed energy, expressed in kilograms (kg).
co2e_unitstringThe unit of measurement for greenhouse gas emissions, which is "kg" (kilograms).
co2e_calculation_method Which calculation methodology that was used for the calculation. Is always ipcc_ar4_gwp100, ipcc_ar5_gwp100, ipcc_ar6_gwp100 or ipcc_mixed_gwp100.
Learn more about calculation methods here.
calculation_methodstringMethod used for calculating the CO2-equivalent global warming potential of gases, as described in the IPCC assessment reports: ar4, ar5 or ar6.
audit_trailstring or absentOnly present with "audit trail" feature. See Advanced audit trail. Not to be confused with our existing audit trail on other endpoints.
source_dataSource data or absentOnly present with "audit trail" feature. Aggregated metadata about the data used for the calculation. This field is deprecated. Prefer the source_trail field instead
source_trailarray of Source Data PointsAn array of data points that help explain and provide trust in the calculation. Click to view more details about Source Trail.
Absence of Estimation model

Our older calculation endpoints always return the Estimation model which gives information about the emission factor that was used in the calculation and how it was applied, but we haven't implemented that for our newest features. This is because the complexity of the calculations performed by our new emissions calculators means that we are unable to explain the calculations adequately using the existing model. Below are the new features which replace the Estimation model and which we are trialling on the Energy feature. If you have some requirements for calculation transparency please get in contact (opens in a new tab).

Advanced audit trailADD-ONADD-ON

A string containing all the information about the calculation we made, this can be stored for future verification purposes.

Audit trail feature

This is not included by default with the energy feature, and requires additionally the "audit trail" premium feature.

This is a new format for recording information about our calculations for audit purposes that we are trialling for the energy feature. We expect to start rolling out generally to other features in the coming months. The intention for this data is for use by people who are verifying the estimations, so it contains all the important information about the calculation which was actually performed and which would make reproduction easy.

We intend to improve this feature over time and that will involve changing the format of the data within string in undefined ways, and so the audit_trail string should not be used in a programmatic way in a live application which is sensitive to breakage. Instead, we recommend that you only store the string, alongside the result and your parameters, and it is used offline in conjunction with our documentation.

Usage

We intend to provide some tooling for this feature as we build it out further, but currently we recommend that you take your unescaped audit_trail string and paste it into the MathJAX demo tool (opens in a new tab). The tool will format the Asciimath markup into mathematical notation in your browser, which should be enough to understand the calculation which was made.

It will show a number of variable assignments with subscript descriptions.

Key to variable symbols:

SymbolDescription
EEstimation result, showing how it was calculated, unsubscripted for the final estimation and with subscripts for any component estimations which are summed to the final one.
IIntermediate calculation, seperated to make the E formula easier to read
FEmissions factor, with a subscript either explaining it's role in the calculation or it's climatiq ID
COther constant, with a subscript explaining it's role in the calculation
PParameter, something that the client provided in the request, with a subscript explaining which paramter it is

The other thing you may see is a notice, which are likely the same as the notices described below in a more machine-readable way. In audit trail, they identify a specific part of the calculation or a specific parameter and give more details as to why it is being used. It is usually for where we have incomplete data or edge cases of our methodology.

Here is an example of how a rendered audit trail could look, this is more complicated than most outputs and is intended to show all the features you could encounter. This example has also been edited to fit more easily on the page:

Rendered audit trail example

Source dataADD-ONADD-ON

Source data provides aggregated information about the sources we used to calculate your estimate. These can be used to signal to end users where the data is coming from and how specific it is to their use case. Each field provides a collection of items, where each of the items describes at least one of the sources.

Audit trail feature

This is not included by default with the energy feature, and requires additionally the "audit trail" premium feature.

AttributeTypeDescription

Notice

The notices array can contain objects like these:

Notice attributesTypeDescription
severitystringEither warning or info. warning is for messages that might lead to inaccurate calculations. You should check these to make sure the results are fit for your intended purpose. info is for information that will help you understand the calculation result better.

codestringA machine-readable categorisation of the notice to allow automatic handling.

The different possible values for code are as follows. You should not treat this list as exhaustive as more values may be added with time:

For Electricity

Notice code valuedescription
supplier_mix_used_for_residualA grid mix factor was used in place of a residual factor, this will lead to an underestimated market estimate.
general_wtt_used_for_specific_factorThe generic regional WTT% was used for a specific market factor, an energy_source should be provided for a better WTT estimate
ignored_parameterA parameter in the request was ignored in favour of some more precise piece of data
recs_subtracted_market_generationMarket components were subtracted for recs
recs_subtracted_market_transmission_and_distributionMarket T&D components were subtracted for recs

For Fuel Combustion

Notice code valuedescription
no_region_matchThe requested region was not matched
no_fuel_use_matchThe requested fuel_use was not matched
wtt_not_estimatedError when trying to estimate WTT, WTT estimate will be empty
