Supporting the UK’s innovation priorities

UK Tech Rocketship recognition!

 

Since its Clean Growth category win of the UK Tech Rocketship awards, interest in carbonTRACK’s decentralised energy management solution has been overwhelming.

If you are a UK-based energy provider, PV solar company, energy consultant or have other interest in the clean energy space, please get in touch: info@carbontrackUK.co.uk 

carbonTRACK helps solve key challenges, such as:

1. Grid stability
2. Maximising solar self-consumption
3. Peak- demand management
4. Battery optimisation
5. Carbon reduction
6. Transitioning to an EV future

Decentralised energy future

carbonTRACK, enables a decentralised energy future. The patented intelligent energy management platform allows energy users and energy providers to remotely monitor, control and automate energy consumption, generation & storage.

With carbonTRACK, homeowners and business leaders can seamlessly control their energy ecosystems or let the platform’s powerful Acquired Intelligence engine automate the process.

carbonTRACK also acts as a central energy control gateway, enabling Virtual Power Plants and other demand response initiatives. The solution is technology agnostic and operates on a proprietary, low-cost and highly secure cellular data communication protocol.

How carbonTRACK works - the big picture

 

UK’s Clean Growth ethos

1. Grid stability
The traditional grid is under strain – due to its ageing infrastructure and the influx of less-predictable renewable power.

carbonTRACK optimises solar by helping energy consumers/generators maximise their self-consumption (reducing grid demand) and provides virtual power plant / DER control capability for energy providers and decentralised storage asset financiers. Download our VPP case study here: VPP case study
2. Maximising solar self-consumption
Solar pay-back periods are set to increase due to a reduction in government solar subsidies and the reduction in feed-in tariffs.

carbonTRACK helps solar system owners make the most of their investment – they can see the energy they use and produce, set alerts for system issues and switch appliances and circuit-level loads remotely to take full advantage of their solar umbrella.
3. Peak-demand manager
Energy users can stay within peak demand charge limits with carbonTRACK’s Demand Charge Manager. The user can select their energy provider’s tariff structure and which appliances they want to involve in the Flex Load Prioritization. The appliances selected will be switched on and off automatically – in priority order - to manage peak loads and to ensure that the usage does not go over the pre-set threshold. At any time, users can override the program if lifestyle choices require them to.
4. Battery optimisation
Energy users can charge their batteries from the grid when prices are low, or from solar when prices are high. Users can store excess solar energy and sell it back to the grid when the prices rise. In an energy event such as a grid outage, the user can use carbonTRACK’s Battery Maximiser to select nonessential appliances to automatically switch off to optimise the use of stored energy.
5. Carbon reduction
UK’s ‘net zero by 2050’ target is to be applauded. Energy users – particularly businesses – need advanced tools to help them control and measure consumption targets.

carbonTRACK let’s energy users control their entire energy ecosystem – including solar, grid and equipment/appliances – to reduce their carbon footprint. The platform’s real-time reporting capability helps to establish a baseline and tracks performance over time.
6. Transition to an EV future
Electric Vehicles are the future but charging one car uses the same volume of electricity as a typical home uses in three days. Without a smart charging policy and process, this will mean further grid strain and frequent blackouts.

carbonTRACK can manage the EV charging process in residential and commercial settings. The platform will balance vehicle charging with other electricity needs and determine the best charging source, time and speed – e.g. fast charge, trickle charge, solar charge or battery charge.
Empowered energy users

 

A critical step to transitioning to a clean energy economy is 'maximising' the use of renewable energy.

The shift to a distributed energy model will not be possible unless energy users – both homes and businesses – are empowered to seamlessly & remotely control their energy ecosystems.

carbonTRACK's platform delivers a coordinated & automated approach to managing solar, grid and stored power.

Energy value chain

Empowered energy users are the foundation of a decentralised energy model and the positive impact extends all the way up the energy value chain.

This is how key energy market participants can benefit:

Home and business owners can remotely monitor & control their energy use and leverage the system’s advanced control capability to act on these insights – including remote switching and scheduling loads to make the most of the sun’s free energy or best ToU grid energy rates.

Governments, councils, and local authorities can improve the efficiency of public sector buildings, set higher standards for new developments, and support renewable energy policy innovation.

Energy suppliers can predict grid loads and remotely manage decentralised energy resources, demand response programs, peak demand and virtual power plants.

Solar companies can provide a monitored & optimised solution with a range of ongoing maintenance services and explore alternative business models as energy aggregators.

Energy efficiency consultants and third-party intermediaries (TPIs) have fleet-wide behind the meter visibility into clients’ energy environments and can formulate targeted improvement initiatives, and demonstrate their positive impact.

Battery and storage providers can integrate seamlessly with the carbonTRACK platform and provide advanced VPP ready – control of their storage solutions.

Clean Growth Innovation

The transition to a decentralised energy model presents significant opportunities for all participants in the energy value chain. carbonTRACK’s platform enables the energy sector – from energy user to energy provider – to actively participate in the future of energy.

The solution includes hardware, network infrastructure, control systems and a powerful machine learning and predictive engine. It brings together remote storage management, demand response and virtual power plant (VPP) control systems all under one umbrella, using its co-ordinated response capability.

The same platform that enables users to remotely monitor & control their energy can be used by energy providers & energy aggregators as a central co-ordinated response control gateway.
