A platform for world energy monitoring

How are we going to make accurate comparisons between all the data on electricity consumption and fuel? How do you know if any two measurements are alike? When I heard about AMEE, a missing piece of the climate puzzle seemed to fall into place.
The AMEE platform provides global emissions data and this means that whatever energy numbers go into the front end of an AMEE tool, consistent conversions come out the other side.
AMEE just announced venture funding from O'Reilly. Great news for the climate. As tools and calculators proliferate, I'm ready for all this data to begin converging on one functional platform.
