Real-time electricity & carbon API with forecasts

Precisely measure and forecast the origin and fuel source of electricity from over 100 geographies worldwide.

A global and comprehensive signal

electricityMap API is the largest source of real-time electricity generation and carbon intensity data. Using our forecasted marginal signals, smart devices can anticipate optimal charging times, reducing emissions and reducing electricity costs.

Leveraging advanced technology

Built upon the open source project electricityMap.org , electricityMap API offers streamlined access to our proprietary machine learning engine which processes over 300 datapoints per second. Coupled flow equations enable us to learn the physical origin of electricity at each point of the electrical grid. This enables our AI algorithms to understand the marginal origin of electricity, and to forecast it.
