A large chunk of domestic electricity use in the UK can be attributed to just three appliances - our washing machines, dishwashers and tumble dryers.
Reactive Energy makes these dumb appliances smart.
Our plug allows your appliances to automatically run when grid electricity is at its greenest.
The UK has made huge progress in decarbonising its electricity in recent years. In the first quarter of 2020, renewables accounted for 47% of electricity generation.
But there is a problem. Renewables are intermittent. What happens when the "wind doesn't blow" or the "sun doesn't shine"?
Coal and gas power stations are fired up to plug the gap.
The result is that the carbon intensity of the grid fluctuates continuously. At some points in the day it is low, with most energy coming from renewables whilst at other times in the day it is high, with lots of energy coming from traditional fossil fuels.
Reactive Energy tracks the carbon intensity of the grid in real time and runs your appliances when it is lowest.
Simply plug your appliances in via our smart plug, continue using your appliances as normal and leave the rest to us!
