The CRANE Tool Wiki

Welcome to the CRANE tool

The CRANE tool is a free & open access tool that can be used to calculate the forward-looking GHG impacts of climate technologies based on the guidance, Pre-Investment Considerations.

Why the CRANE tool?

There is a gap in the marketplace for tools that can inform investors about the potential for their investments to mitigate future emissions. Early-stage investors lack the tools necessary to identify the ventures with the highest potential impact for GHG reductions.

The CRANE tool aims to help early-stage investors identify ventures with the highest potential emissions impact by providing an easy, standardized approach to calculating emissions impact assessment. Aligned with Project Frame’s consensus-built methodology guidance, the CRANE tool builds upon the thought leadership demonstrated by Prime Coalition and NYSERDA in their 2017 report, “Climate Impact Assessment for Early-Stage Ventures.”
