The leading resource for 24/7 electricity CO2 data
We provide actionable data quantifying how carbon intensive electricity is on an hourly basis across 50+ countries. The data can be accessed historically, in real time, or as a forecast for the next 24 hours. You can also explore the real time data on the Electricity Maps app.
Google uses Electricity Maps' forecast data to shift the timing of compute tasks running on their hyperscale data centers to times when low-carbon power sources, like wind and solar, are most plentiful.
In the future they plan to load shift not only based on time, but also based on location in order to maximize the reduction in carbon emissions.
Electricity retailer Barry uses Electricity Maps' data to empower and engage users by showing them when their electricity is the greenest.
By providing actionable data, Barry allows users to reduce their climate impact by using electricity when it has the lowest carbon footprint, resulting in savings for both the environment and their wallet.
Electric vehicle app Tezlab uses Electricity Maps' data to engage users with insights about the carbon impact of their transportation.
Tezlab quantifies the carbon footprint of EV charging, allowing users to visualize reductions in their footprint when they charge at the optimal time, and to purchase trees to offset the emissions they do cause.
Connect your product or service directly to our API to retrieve all relevant electricity data from your regions. Our entire database, including real-time, historical, forecasts as well as marginal data is all available through different endpoints in our API.
The API is simple to use and has been integrated in numerous products and services.
Only interested in historical data? In that case we can supply you with pre-processed sections of historical data for regions of your choosing. The files can be made available in CSV and Excel formats and contain all the data required for your use case.
