National Grid’s app shows consumers how to make smarter energy choices
National Grid’s WhenToPlugIn app, which shows consumers when they can make smarter energy choices, is available on both Android and iOS phones
The app is powered by carbonintensity.org.uk, the same carbon intensity forecasting tool built by National Grid ESO, The Environmental Defense Fund Europe, The University of Oxford and WWF.
The WhenToPlugIn app shows users the live carbon intensity forecast and lets them know when the electricity in their homes will be cleanest (over the next 48 hours) to help with planning electricity use.
The app also offers a full breakdown of the energy sources in a user’s region and provides live updates as new clean energy records are broken, too.
