Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the data to monitor the impacts of a project?

Not yet but we’re working on it. As a general rule, local emissions profiles (whether through Snapshot or other programs) are not appropriate tools to monitor the impact of a project. The impact of community or council-led projects will generally fall within the margin of error of an emissions profile. The data and methodology underpinning Snapshot are as robust as you can find but, there is currently not enough granularity and too many external factors. This should change over the coming years as the data improves and the scale of projects ramp up.
