Business value

This comprehensive solution lets you import data for electricity, gas, and water directly from utility providers into Microsoft Sustainability Manager, which reduces data errors and processing delays.

Feature details

Microsoft Sustainability Manager has built connectors with Arcadia’s Utility Cloud solution. These connectors collect utility data (purchased electricity and natural gas) directly from utility companies globally.

The Arcadia Utility Cloud platform includes a massive network of integrations with over 9,000 providers in over 50 countries around the world. In developed markets like the United States, this translates to coverage of over 90% of all consumer and business electric, gas, and water accounts. These Arcadia connectors automate the process of ingesting data, simplify the ingestion process, and capture updated information as soon as it’s available.

We're making the following updates for public preview:

  • Expanding the connector offering to include water data in addition to electricity and natural gas.
  • Providing flexibility for you to select specific accounts, utility providers, and regions for data import.

The Arcadia utility data connector in Sustainability Manager is a partner solution that will be available for public preview after June 2023 and then later expanded to general availability.
