Carbon Current is an IoT integrated mobile application that incentivizes a low carbon lifestyle through energy monitoring and carbon quantification for the home environment. It aims to make users mindful of their energy consumption and carbon footprint by identifying opportunities to save. By donating the energy saved, users have a chance to help other people and communities who do not have access to energy and other essential resources.

Carbon Current addresses the critical global issue of energy disparity and climate change and offers individuals an agency to make a difference. In doing so, it speculates on how emerging smart technologies can influence behavioral patterns and create a social impact.
