If water utilities joined drones and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) with secure AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and a video analysis platform, they could keep their tanks in service, reduce inspection time, and avoid wasted water while cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
ALL CASE STUDIES
Energy-Efficient Frozen Food with Lineage Logistics®
Using AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to collect temperature data, ndustrial.io combined temperature, energy and food information to enable Lineage Logistics to manage its cooling operations, reducing costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
Food Waste into Energy with Emerson
Increased scalability, thanks to AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, means more food waste is being converted into clean energy and fertilizer by Emerson’s Grind2Energy solution.
Energy Efficiency in Buildings with Redaptive®
Redaptive® utilizes AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to reduce annual electricity use by almost 160 million kilowatt hours through energy-efficient building equipment.
AT&T Enterprise Building Management Systems (EBMS)
As of the end of 2017, 27,000 pieces of AT&T building equipment in AT&T buildings across 250 cities were reducing electricity expenses by about $925,000.
AT&T Efficiency-as-a-Service (EaaS)
In 2017 alone, this program enabled AT&T to save almost $20 million on electricity bills and realize carbon dioxide emissions savings equivalent to taking 21,000 cars off the road.
AT&T FlexWareSM helps reduce space, electricity usage and emissions by consolidating networking functions onto a single device. 3,500 FlexWare devices can enable annual energy savings of almost 4 million kWh. That’s like not using approximately 250,000 gallons of gasoline.
How We're Measuring Progress
In 2015, there was no standard to measure how technology solutions can help reduce GHG emissions. We worked with the Carbon Trust and BSR to build a 10x Methodology for measuring progress toward our 10x goal.
Net Positive Project
We’re a founding member of this collaborative effort looking to spur “net positive” efforts like our 10x goal. With this group, we are working to create approaches to measuring “net positive” and encouraging other companies to pursue a net positive impact.
Progress to 2025: 10x Goal Update
At the end of 2018, we estimated that our technology solutions enabled GHG reductions of 17.1 million metric tons of CO2e, which is equivalent to over 1.9 billion gallons of gasoline. In 2018, our current 10x factor is approximately 2.2x.
