I recently joined as private customer; very happy with service so far! Thanks.
From a work perspective (I’m an engineer at Arup working on building systems), I would like to set up a trial with a utility using the National Grid Carbon Intensity Predictor API.
I imagine a tariff that fluctuates on the half hour aligned with the National Grid reported emissions. The building control system would then adjust power consumption to follow the National Grid 48 look ahead prediction. New website and API published Sept 2017 http://carbonintensity.org.uk/
Are flexible tariffs in Bulb’s pipeline? With the right client and contract would Bulb consider doing an early trial in 2018?
Interested in what others from the community think of this? Anyone like to see their workplace adjust power consumption to match the grid carbon intensity.
From a renewable energy perspective I think this supports the 100% renewables status Bulb already has:
“All tariffs are 100% renewable; Bulb only buys renewable electricity on the wholesale market 3 months in advance to get the best prices; the ‘new carbon intensity tracker’ is also 100% renewable; the tracking feature supports better grid management which helps everyone on the grid get to 100% renewables faster”
