BALTIMORE, April 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, in celebration of Earth Day, CPower Energy Management (“Power“), the nation’s leading energy solutions provider, announced that its customers have avoided more than 280,000 tonnes of CO2 in 2021, which is equivalent to burning no more than 317,000,000 pounds of coal, thanks to demand response (9,052 metric tons activated) and energy efficiency (277,488 metric tons measured). Thanks to its partnership with the Environmental Tech association WattTime, CPower brings customers deeper insights into emissions savings. This is the second year in a row that CPower and WattTime have partnered to show emissions reductions through demand response and energy efficiency, in celebration of Earth Day.
CPower customers typically avoid emissions associated with their electricity consumption in at least two ways, through demand response events that temporarily reduce electricity loads at particular times and through efficiency projects energy sources that permanently reduce the demand for electricity. WattTime’s marginal emissions data and analysis enables CPower and its customers to better quantify how energy efficiency and demand response translate into avoided emissions on the power grid. WattTime’s technology also enables a continuous response to environmental demand called automated emissions reduction.
