Empower Decarbonisation

New publication: EMPOWER DECARBONISATION

Karl Jeffery and Dimitris Lyras have recently published their new book, “Decarbonisation, situation awareness and better digital tools”. The new publication describes empowered decarbonisation. Which means empowering you to make decisions that pro-actively promote decarbonisation in your enterprise. Let’s also mention that this is not Karl’s and Dimitri’s first or second collaboration.

Software for Domain Experts

The new book is, actually, the tenth in their ‘Software for Domain Experts’ series. A few words about ‘Software for Domain Experts’ might be appropriate. The premise is that software must solve the concerns of experts in specific verticals by being relevant to them. So software for domain experts differs from generic software by understanding the specific world or the domain people work in. In effect, it refers to software designed with this world in mind and includes the people who live and work in it. In other words, the domain experts. And who knows this world best, if not the domain experts? The people who are, certainly, in the best position to help design software solutions that work for them.

Digital tools that can provide situational awareness

In their book, Karl Jeffery and Dimitris Lyras discuss the digital tools that can provide much needed situational awareness.  They explain why situational awareness is important and how, with the right digital tools, you, the stakeholder, can benefit from your data and make informed decisions. Whereas, carbon emission data alone doesn’t empower decarbonisation or help you achieve your environmental goals.

How does decarbonisation take place?

How, then, does an enterprise in a particular industry reduce emitting? And how does decarbonisation take place without disrupting business sustainability?
“Decarbonisation, the authors reply, is unlikely to be about simple choices. We need to know the levers to reduce emissions, whether they are working, and how decarbonisation fits with our other objectives such as making profit or developing a business.
We have to understand the cause and effect of whatever domain we are working in, and develop stories about how it all works, taking carbon into account.
This all calls for much deeper awareness into how decarbonisation fits with the rest of our company’s activities, while seeing how we can achieve continuous steady reductions”
Above all the authors refer to the importance of situational awareness and to digital models that provide this awareness.  When aggregated data effectively relates to situational and operational information in order to help stakeholders take decisions. Assisting with decision-making will undoubtedly empower decarbonisation, making it less of a challenge.

The only way to achieve actual decarbonisation

“The only way to achieve actual decarbonisation is giving decision makers situation awareness about the carbon impact of their decisions. Digital technology could help achieve this, but it is not really on a pathway to doing that right now. This book shows how it could be done, technically and commercially. Situation awareness is like the feeling you get standing at the top of a mountain looking down at the world, it feels easy to understand everything and how it all works.”
