WattTime Pinpoints the Greenest Grid Power

WattTime Pinpoints the Greenest Grid Power

The ability to track and respond to real-time grid power prices is being programmed into a growing number of grid-edge devices, such as electric-vehicle chargers, smart thermostats and appliances, and behind-the-meter battery control systems. But there’s the price of grid electricity, and then there’s the greenhouse gas emissions profile of grid electricity -- and the two are not always the same. That’s a problem for anyone hoping to turn smart devices to the specific task of greening the grid, at least in a verifiable way. But with the right mix of grid data and emissions data, it should be possible to turn price-responsive assets into emissions-responsive assets -- and give green-minded consumers and corporations another reason to buy into smart energy controls. That’s the proposition behind WattTime . Founded in 2014, the Berkeley-based nonprofit started out sending tex...
