Carbon Trust app development

Do you live in the Midlands, South Wales or the South West? Are you interested in local, clean energy?

If the answer is Yes! to these two questions then we're delighted to invite you to be involved in an innovative project that could change the way that you engage with your electricity supply.

The Carbon Trust are building a free mobile and web app that would allow users to view the real-time location-specific carbon content of their electricity supply. The app will let you see where your electricity is coming from, and how the carbon intensity varies during the day. We have a bunch of other ideas that we want to test, and we want you to help us!

We would like to invite you to be interviewed to hear your feedback on some ideas we have for the app. We also want to invite you to trial a limited release of the app when it first comes out. If you would like to get involved, please click on this link.
