    Presentation Innovation & Technology Decarbonization Pathways

    The Canary is a compact, cost-effective, IoT environmental monitor designed to be deployed in scalable networks to provide hyper-localized, comprehensive data in energy, industrial, transportation, and other sectors. Real-time, continuous leak-detection and monitoring of pollutants, such as total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs), methane, particulate matter, and others, paired with meteorological parameters and the ability to automatically trigger Summa canisters provides operators with actionable data that can be used to immediately react to off-nominal operations. This proven system provides quality data at a price point lower than other technologies, while maintaining the flexibility needed to address user priorities.
