Consumptionation is a one minute voluntary and collaborative carbon footprint reduction plan. The concept behind this project is to reduce the demand for energy at any given minute by distributing the requests for energy based on number of requests during a specific time frame. Our goal is to allow buildings with smart thermostats to connect with our database, which will send delay signals if necessary to even out the demand for electricity. If there are too many requests in a given minute, the database will issue a wait signal of one minute, thus reducing the peaks that cause energy prices and carbon emissions to rise.
