Sydney-based energy retailer Mojo Power has signed a memorandum of understanding with energy industry disrupter carbonTRACK to deploy carbonTRACK’s technology in a live deployment with targeted customers.

Under the deal carbonTRACK’s system will equip Mojo customers to automatically turn off or defer intense energy usage during peak price periods and, once the benefits are proven, Mojo says it will deploy the system more widely for customers.

Mojo Power Executive Director Commercial Adam MacDonald said the partnership with carbonTRACK delivered on Mojo’s commitment to give its customers access and control of transparently priced and affordable energy.

“This is an exciting move for Mojo Power in building out our offerings of smart tools for residential and business customers,” he said.

“We want our customers to enjoy simple plans, clear and accurate bills and access their electricity usage data if they choose to. carbonTRACK provides us with smart tools that give our customers the visibility to track and automatically manage their electricity usage.”

carbonTRACK Managing Director Spiros Livadaras said Mojo Power's decision demonstrated the benefits offered by carbonTRACK’s technology for innovative energy companies.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Mojo,” he said.

“Mojo is an innovative Australian electricity retailer that’s disrupting the status quo, so we are proud that our technology will help their customers both improve their quality of life and save money.”

Livadaras said the benefits of carbonTRACK’s Intelligent Energy Management systems include demand-side management, peak shaving, storage integration and Virtual Power Plants.

He said carbonTRACK’s demand response, frequency regulation, virtual energy trading and grid resiliency solutions deliver the full Virtual Power Plant (VPP) value chain to utilities & transmission system operators, system operators & energy traders, financiers, solar sales teams and solar hardware manufacturers.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
