The Impact of Carbon Insights

When it comes to making a positive environmental impact, using energy at strategic times can be more powerful overall than making other green changes.

Carrying a reusable coffee cup and tote bag is all part of leading a sustainable lifestyle, but the impact of simply choosing greener times to use your appliances is significant in comparison. Not to mention, it’s a no-cost solution. 

All it takes is developing a habit. In the same way you check the weather to see if you need to take an umbrella, simply check the carbon intensity with Loop’s EcoMeter to see the greenest times to run your dishwasher. That’s why we call this your “green energy forecast”.

How The EcoMeter Works

Loop’s EcoMeter shows live grid carbon intensity and a 24-hour forecast. In other words, how clean or dirty the grid is right now and what pollution levels from electricity generation are expected to be over the next day. Armed with this information you can make easy, impactful, eco-friendly choices. 

Accessing real-time carbon insights allows you to rethink the timing of energy-intensive tasks, such as running your dishwasher or charging your electric vehicle. Aligning these activities with times when more renewable energy is being generated can help you lead a more sustainable lifestyle.

Transform Your Energy Habits

As you continuously monitor your energy consumption patterns with Loop, you become more aware of your habits.

This heightened awareness inspires positive energy-saving behaviors like turning off lights and unplugging standby appliances. On average, Loop users cut their energy use by 15%, equating to a carbon saving of 250kg CO2e.

You might then be ready to take on bigger carbon-cutting measures like installing solar panels. They could cut your carbon footprint by 1.6 tonnes each and every year!

The Impact Of Sustainable Living

Loop’s EcoMeter empowers you with factual insights that enable meaningful conversations about carbon intensity and sustainable energy practices. By sharing your knowledge, you play a pivotal role in nurturing a global shift in mindset toward responsible energy use. Knowledge is power, and we all have the power to set an example for others to follow.

Clear, intuitive and easy. It displays what you need without fuss. The app also offers tips and tricks written clearly and concisely meaning that you can dig into topics as much or as little as you want. The solar and battery simulator is also useful and fun and I really like the way the app describes the mix of energy sources that are being used. A great app that I'm keeping for the foreseeable!
