PALcarbon API Overview
Our PALcarbon Application Programming Interface (API) provides a means to subscribe and communicate data between PALcarbon and other software components. It simple and straight forward to use. Access current global predictable carbon prices and per fuel-type prices for all energy types. Carbon prices are updated frequently throughout the day in conjunction with the latest temperature anomaly and fuel emission data. Features include:
- Dollar prices on damage attributable to climate change per tonne of CO2 emitted,
- Selected fuel and energy types price-weighted by their CO2 impact and usage
- Temperature anomaly data
- Historical carbon pricing data
- Fuel usage upload for Carbon Dashboards
The PALcarbon system is the data and calculation vehicle that Predict Ability Ltd has published as the world’s first independent, scientifically robust scheme for a fair and meaningful approach to dealing with past, present and future carbon emissions. It has a major advantage over existing cap and trade systems: it is not vulnerable to political manipulation.
The science that underpins PALcarbon is explained in ‘Predicting the Price of Carbon: How to Crack the Climate Change Code for Good’. Written by Richard H. Clarke, Director (Research), Predict Ability Ltd, this book is available to buy in electronic version from iBooks and Kindle, and in paperback from Amazon.
CO2 emissions are not going to stop any time soon, and their consequences will last for hundreds of years. PALcarbon is a common sense pricing algorithm for a carbon world.
Current Carbon Pricing Data
Access current global predictable carbon prices and per fuel-type prices for all energy types using PALcarbon’s API. Carbon prices are updated frequently throughout the day in conjunction with the latest temperature anomaly data. Data is available in JSON (computer web-friendly format) or CSV (Excel) format.
Current Temperature Anomaly Data
Access latest global intra-day temperature anomaly data using PALcarbon’s API. Readings are updated throughout the day. Data is available in JSON or CSV format.
Historical Carbon Pricing Data
Access historical global carbon prices and per fuel-type prices for all energy types using PALcarbon’s API. Carbon prices and temperature anomaly data are available back to 1980. Data is available in JSON or CSV format.
Fuel Usage Upload
Upload latest energy usage data using PALcarbon’s API at let PALcarbon calculate carbon prices by fuel type, emissions and carbon loss/revenue data throughout the day. Access calculated price data using our API or via your own dedicated PALcarbon Dashboard.
Add a carbon price widget to your website showing current global predictable carbon prices for a variety of different fuel-types using the PALcarbon User Interface (UI) kit. Carbon prices are updated frequently throughout the day in conjunction with the latest temperature anomaly data.
