ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM carbonTRACK is an intelligent energy management system and Internet of Things platform that provides energy usage insight and allows consumers to control and switch electrical devices and appliances. This is said to reduce cost, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. The system’s learning algorithms, wireless device switching, independent communications protocol and demand response capability provide benefits along the entire electricity value chain: for energy consumers, distributors, retailers and generators. It is said to reduce energy consumption by approximately 30%, with


payback in less than one year, enabling users to have viability and control over power generation and consumption.
