carbonTRACK is an intelligent energy management platform which connects and improves the performance of de-centralised energy assets.
“There are some 800,000 installed PV solar systems in the UK, many are underperforming due to neglect since the tariffs were reduced. By retrofitting carbonTRACK, commercial, industrial and residential users will be able to bring their solar systems back to their specified performance”, says Spiros Livadaras, CEO of carbonTRACK.
carbonTRACK brings experience from the solar & storage energy markets of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA. carbonTRACK is installed in 2,300 residential sites across NZ as part of a Virtual Power Plant, aggregating 6MW of power. This can be supplied to the grid as flexible electricity in under 3 seconds. The UK also sees flexible electricity as a solution to grid constraints and ever-increasing reinforcement costs.
“We want to contribute to the UK’s ambitious plan of ending its contribution to global warming by 2050 by bringing our technology and international experience to the UK,” says Spiros.
Winning the Clean Growth category of the UK Tech Rocketship awards validates carbonTRACK as uniquely innovative. Continuous innovation, however, is needed to match the needs of the UK’s energy markets. These are rapidly evolving within a regulatory and technology landscape. This is one of the main reasons carbonTRACK chose Birmingham for its UK headquarters.
