WattTime’s origins date back to our quest to answer a seemingly simple question: “How clean is the electricity I’m using right now?” For a variety of reasons, there wasn’t a way to answer the question. And we decided it was worth figuring out.
It started out with dozens of software coders in a computer-filled room tackling the problem in a hackathon. Since then, 200+ volunteers across disciplines have contributed their skills and talents, backed by the work and participation of PhDs and researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, and Carnegie Mellon University. The resulting solution: Automated Emissions Reduction.
Today, we continue to feed AER with increasing algorithms and capabilities so that we can put forth solutions that align with our mission and enable customers to deliver on consumers’ demand for energy choice.
