How CarbonTrack Works

The Big Picture

We’re creating a new energy ecosystem that’s closing the gap between energy supply and demand. Our solution consists of hardware, network infrastructure, control systems, analytical engines and a powerful machine learning and predictive engine. It enables ‘behind the meter’ visibility and empowers energy consumers and energy providers with advanced energy control capability. Here’s how we are creating smart homes and smart buildings, and helping to shape the global energy future.

Maximise solar self-consumption. Solar energy is best used when it's produced. carbonTRACK can schedule usage when solar is available and use the excess to charge a battery or export to the grid. The system limits exports where they are not permitted.
Prepare for the future energy market. carbonTRACK’s intelligence and co-ordinated response capability creates an energy ecosystem where energy is better shared across communities. From smart buildings to smart grids, the technology is helping to shape the future of energy, including embedded networks, demand response initiatives and Virtual Power Plants (VPP).

Smart Buildings

carbonTRACK’s IoT capability enables homeowners and building occupants to monitor and control their energy use – with or without solar. It helps users understand their unique usage patterns and enables them to act immediately to save electricity. If they have solar, carbonTRACK optimises solar self-consumption and provides pre-emptive alerts of system faults. It’s all done through a simple-to-use, intuitive app on a smartphone, tablet or computer. Users can even set their control preferences and let carbonTRACK automate the process. Here are the highlights:

Manage and reduce energy bills. See what appliances are using what power and when and use these insights to make more energy-efficient choices. The system can also schedule loads to take advantage of best time-of-use rates, if available.
Optimise solar and batteries.See what solar is being produced and how much of it is being used. Receive pre-emptive alerts if there's a system fault or drop in efficiency. Recharge batteries from the cheapest source of energy and control the way they are used.

Smart Businesses

CarbonTRACK equips businesses with unparalleled insights and control over their energy use. It identifies when energy is being used and which equipment is most energy-hungry. Businesses are able to control their usage remotely from any location using a computer, smartphone or tablet. They can set schedules to take advantage of low ToU tariffs or allow carbonTRACK to automate the process. carbonTRACK’s pre real-time algorithm assists with peak load management by shaving demand (using hierarchical switching) or increasing supply (by discharging a battery).
