Going green is big trend in Japan and finding ways to be more efficient and save on electricity consumption is eco-friendly. That’s where the Energy Literacy Platform (ELP) by Sassor 株式会社 is a nifty power management tool. You put the ELP model between your outlets and home appliances and a receiver then sends your energy data to your PC and the ELP website allows you to see how much electricity you are using.
The simple white block-shaped module has lights that change color from green to red as the energy consumption increases. When it hits red you are using the maximum capacity of electricity for the appliance.
The website displays your usage in real-time and gives you visualizations to show you what the consumption translates to in practical terms. What’s really cool is that you can also control your devices from the website, including switching things off — and likewise it can be accessed and controlled from your smartphone too.
This futuristic concept is one step closer to reality. The device is still in development but we hope will be commercially available soon.
