Grid Intensity Tools

In addition to tracking the transition of websites, we provide tooling to understand the estimated carbon intensity of electricity based on where in the internet you run compute, or route packets through.

You can use this to make your own applications and website carbon aware.

For software written in Go

We have a golang library and handy command line tool. Want to know the carbon intensity of the grid you’re on?

Call brew install grid-intensity on a mac, or apt install grid-intensity on linux, to download our open source software, to provide command line access to carbon intensity information,.

For software written in Javascript

If you work on the web, or you’re more comfortable using nodejs, or it’s newer cousin, Deno, try our javascript libraries. You can use them to extend your software, and embed an awareness of the conditions on the electricity grid, so you can optimise for carbon:
