Tokyo-based, Sassor is developing a solution called "Energy Literacy Platform" that lets you track each household appliance individually and makes it possible to turn these devices off remotely, for example by pushing a button on your smartphone. The ELP is based on the idea that by empowering consumers with a tool that informs them how much energy their appliances really use, they'll start saving energy.
The platform consists of three parts:
- ELP modules you place between your various power outlets and home appliances.
- ELP receiver that harvests power consumption data to server.
- A website or smartphone app that lets you track how much energy each appliance uses and even allows you to turn devices off remotely if needed.
The modules change color from green to yellow and finally to red, as you approach the energy limit you previously set on the ELP website or app:
ELP's websit helps you to track the exact amount of energy and money consumed by each device in real-time. You can also turn off things while on-the-go through the ELP website or smartphone app, for example if you forgot to turn off the lights in your house.
