Openly and consistently assessing the impacts of tech

The open source licensed Technology Carbon Standard (TCS) provides a standardized framework for assessing and mitigating the environmental impact of enterprise technology estates.

Drawing from the well-established Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, the TCS categorizes technology according to it's lifecycle stages, enabling organizations to consistently map, measure, and prioritize their technology's carbon footprint. By integrating with existing open-source initiatives and fostering collaboration among sustainability stakeholders, technology leaders, and practitioners, the TCS fills a critical gap in the industry.
This talk will cover more details of the Upstream, Operational and Downstream aspects of the standard and how this approach could also be used to assess water and e-waste impacts as well.

ABOUT OLIVER Oliver began his career in local e-government. Later working for UK and EU government clients at an energy and environmental consultancy, building carbon calculators, air quality databases and industrial emissions reporting systems. More recently Oliver has worked as an Enterprise Architect at a European Energy company, and is now Technology Director at Scott Logic.

Outside of work you can generally find Oliver with a camera in hand or on a bicycle - having cycled the length of the UK twice! With a love of nature and the outdoors that he likes to share with his wife and kids.
Kilowatts Grid - Open source real time GB grid visualisation

Kilowatts grid is an open-source mobile and web app showing the live output of hundreds of generators and inter-connectors around GB, spanning from the largest thermal generators to the newest batteries and wind-farms. It also shows live balancing information, highlighting wind curtailment and ESO real-time responses.

In this talk Ben will take us through what the app can do and how it can be helpful. He'll also talk about some of the challenges in the UK energy grid and what the future holds for his app.

Ben is a self-employed full stack energy developer, passionate about creating innovative and scalable solutions for the energy transition. With over 6 years of experience in energy modelling and forecasting, he's developed tools and applications for solar, heating, investment analysis, and pricing, using CircleCI, Apollo GraphQL, AWS SageMaker, and other technologies.
His mission is to help clients and stakeholders make informed and strategic decisions in the evolving energy market.
