Realtimecarbon is a joint project by AMEE and Demand Logic limited. It is sponsored by a charitable grant from Dynamic Demand.
About AMEE: The transition to a low-carbon economy requires action from everyone from business and governments to individuals. To enable this, AMEE is lowering the barriers-to-engagement for everyone. AMEE's aim is to map, measure and track all the energy and carbon data on Earth: the AMEE Platform helps track any activity or consumption data, including fuel, water, waste and other factors and convert them into carbon/GHG figures. Its web-services combines measurement, calculation, modelling, profiling and transactional services to power branded applications. Business, Consumer and Government applications are "Powered by AMEE" to ensure compliance with authoritative international standards.
Demand Logic brings the benefits of demand response to UK companies. Demand response is the term given to orchestrating demand for electricity in response to signals. An example would be real time price signals from utility companies. It can also include signals regarding the balance between supply and demand on the grid. Now the signals include the CO2 resulting from generation of electricity. Demand Logic will enable commercial buildings to reduce demand not only to when there is too little supply available, but also to time consumption with periods of lower CO2 arising.
Dynamic Demand is a not-for-profit organisation that has championed the idea of demand response in the UK. It aims to reduce carbon emissions and help prepare the grid for the changing nature of generation towards renewables. It's campaigns have resulted in cross-party political, Governmental and industry support.
