I am trying to build a report on energy consumed by the enterprise. Could one of the experts here guide me is such information is stored in S/4HANA? Would it be available under EHS?
the information/data you are looking for is indeed a part of EHS Environment Management. However, the most important question to ask is which scope of Emissions shall be reported here. Your question implies that you’re looking for Scope 2 Emissions (Indirect Emissions, consumption of purchased electricity, steam, heat and cooling). Hence, my answer only covers these emissions. Reporting on Scope 1 and Scope 3 Emissions is a different kind of beast. Your requirement may also ask for these - that’s something you need to clarify.
There are several steps required to get this information/data in the correct format for any kind of reporting:
From my experience, the data collection and aggregation is key here to build meaningful and correct reports.
With kind regards,
To add to what MIchael mentioned, the "source" of the energy data may come from outside an S/4 module - it could be utility bills, plant data historians, manual sampling, or spreadsheets. EHS-EM offers a few options to get that data into the application as specific consumption records, and then those are used by the emission equations to give you a GHG emission result. EHS-EM has content to handle Scope 1 and 2 emissions, and could do some of Scope 3 with project work to create the necessary data collections and equations. Some SAP applications that might track energy consumed would be Digital Manufacturing, Asset Performance Management, and Transportation.
