Description (excerpt):

First developed in 2013 by the climate investment firm HASI, CarbonCount is a decision tool that evaluates investments in U.S.-based carbon-free energy, energy efficiency, and climate resilience projects to determine how efficiently they reduce CO2 equivalent emissions per $1,000 of investment. CarbonCount scores reflect a quantitative impact assessment of the avoided emissions of a project by integrating forward-looking project assumptions, emissions factors, and capital investment.

HASI recently released a new and improved CarbonCount 2.0 to give a more precise assessment of avoided emissions via newly available locational marginal emissions (LME) factors that reflect the grid composition specific to each project’s location at the time of generation.
