Real-time electricity & carbon API with forecasts

Precisely measure and forecast the origin, fuel source, and carbon intensity of electricity from over 100 geographies worldwide.

electricityMap API usecase mobility

Optimize
Reduce your carbon footprint and save money

Data centers, electric mobility providers, and utilities are using the electricityMap API to reduce their environmental impact and save money by automatically optimizing their electricity use to align with periods when the grid has a low carbon footprint. Since electricity prices are strongly correlated with the carbon intensity of the grid, you can save money while lowering your carbon footprint.

Engage
Share real-time carbon insights with your customers

Differentiate your product by showing customers the real-time carbon impact of electricity used in your product. Electricity retailers, smart thermostats, and energy consultants are communicating real-time carbon intensity of electricity use to their customers with the electricityMap API.

Customers and Partners

A global and comprehensive signal

electricityMap API is the largest source of real-time electricity generation and carbon intensity data, with a proprietary machine learning engine that processes 300 datapoints per second.

Multiple dimensions

Average carbon intensity
Marginal carbon intensity
Detailed breakdown by source

Global Coverage

Worldwide coverage
Standardized across regions
Includes imports & exports

High frequency

Hourly granularity
48h ahead forecasts
High availability guaranteed

Coupled flow equations enable us to learn the physical origin of electricity at each point of the electrical grid. This enables our AI algorithms to understand the marginal origin of electricity and to forecast it.
