Low carbon apps

Cover Image for Low carbon apps

Carbon Champ were a pair of phone apps I designed and built, based on the environmental models created by Vivek Gilani, an environmental engineer in India based on the region-specific models he created to calculate individual carboon footprints. This was later carried forward at The No2Co2 Project. The idea was to make citizens of India aware of their own energy consumption patterns, carbon footprints and help them map these figures to their electricity bill, and offer tips to lower both energy usage, energy usage in off-peaks and energy costs. The results were two tangible phone applications - One to help individuals "realize" their carbon footprints, the other to help them "minimize" it.
