WattTime builds technologies that make it simple and automatic to reduce carbon emissions.
Cloud-Based Environmental Intelligence
Our cloud-based software is the first and only analysis tool that tracks the environmental implications of your electricity consumption in real time
Whenever a device begins using electricity, the power grid automatically assigns a particular power plant to ramp up to meet the increased electricity demand… the so-called “marginal” power plant. The environmental impact of your energy consumption fully depends on which marginal plant is ramping up to meet demand, from air conditioning to electric vehicle charging. In most power grids, this power plant constantly changes as weather, demand, and electricity markets fluctuate. WattTime’s predictive analytics engine continuously identifies opportunities for devices to cut carbon pollution, use more renewable energy, and reduce other pollutants by timing use to align with cleaner electricity generation.
The WattTime API reports the carbon footprint of electricity, in real time and forecast up to 24 hours in advance. It’s developer-friendly and ready to use in everything from building energy dashboards to mobile apps.
Sustainability Through Smart Devices and Software
WattTime enabled devices can significantly reduce their carbon emissions without impacting user comfort, equipment operations or energy costs.
By assessing and forecasting the impact of the marginal power plant on each electric grid in real time, we can pinpoint opportunities for internet connected devices to save carbon simply by automatically performing the same task earlier or later. WattTime can work in almost all 23 billion internet connected devices currently in use.
From pumps to freezers, most devices have some flexibility in exactly when they consume electricity. This means they can start reducing emissions immediately upon connection to WattTime. Let’s provide all users with the power of choice Get started
Demand Response that Users Demand
WattTime’s automatic environmental demand response works around the clock to minimize carbon emissions, shave peak demand, and reduce renewable energy curtailment without ever impacting the end user.
WattTime uses real-time grid emissions, weather, and market data to provide a 24-hour forecast that amplifies the environmental impact of demand response. WattTime’s Environmental Demand Response (EDR) enabled devices automatically engage in constant, 24/7 grid optimization over nearly all grid services, from peak shaving to ramp reduction. This increased granularity ensures a more flexible system that can efficiently accommodate even the most unpredictable energy markets. Researchers have discovered that EDR typically achieves the same capacity benefits per user as ADR, but leads to greater reductions in congestion, fuel costs, ramping, and emissions.
WattTime’s software can drastically increase DR adoption and lower customer acquisition costs by promising increased environmental impacts and empowering users to customize their level of interaction with DR events. Simultaneously, WattTime’s ability to automatically time-shift electricity consumption to moments of clean energy will have profound effects on renewable energy curtailment and the stride to meet RPS goals while requiring minimal changes to update existing infrastructure.
