When creating a source with a custom emissions factor on the Faradai platform, the start year is automatically set to the current year. The platform calculates emissions data for the year of source creation and subsequent years.
If you create a source with a custom emissions factor today (2023) and then enter data for 2022, the emissions for 2022 will not be calculated. This is because the start year is set to 2023, and the emissions calculation only considers data from the start year onwards.
To ensure that emissions are calculated correctly for years before the source's creation, you can manually adjust the start year for sources with custom emissions factors. This can be done by editing the source in the Admin panel and changing the value in the "Start Year" field.
- Access the Admin panel.
- Navigate to the "Source Management" section.
- Identify the source you want to modify.
- Click the pencil icon to access the editing page.
- Set the desired start year. 6. Specify the desired end date.
- Click "Save" to apply the changes.
I hope this helps!
