Does the product or service incorporate carbon-aware design?
Carbon emissions from any web service will vary constantly depending on the carbon intensity of the electricity grids at the time of usage. When the sun shines or the wind blows, electricity becomes cleaner. At other times, the grid can be more polluting as the proportion of fossil fuel energy increases.
Carbon-aware design helps users of digital services understand the carbon intensity of electricity at the time that they use a service. It also helps shape energy demand so that we shift our usage of digital services to times when the energy supply is cleaner.
