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. Read more about our methodology on our blog .
