Title: €CO2 Management
The €co2 Management System by the PTS company enables switching on previously activated devices at the most economical rates (times). The associated €co2 mobile phone lets you control energy consumption and CO2 emissions via a digital Smart Meter. The goal of the project is to minimize energy costs in households, businesses and farms and to reduce their CO2 emissions. The project is currently in the test phase; the mobile phone and the system will be tested for suitability in practice at energy companies. Electricity and fuel meters will help users save €200-400 annually for a drop in CO2 emissions of 13%. On completion of the pilot project, every energy customer will receive a Micro Emission Certification and a Climate Check. Every saved ton of CO2 will be rewarded with €20. This premium will motivate the population, attract interest and build consciousness. The hope is to save 10 million tons of CO2 annually.
