Tech nonprofits are a growing force for good, with their numbers expanding from a handful to more than a thousand over the past decade.

As Forbes contributor Shannon Farley details, WattTime, a 2014 CITRIS Foundry venture working against climate change, offers a compelling example of a high-growth tech nonprofit, well on the way to sustaining itself through revenue.

The company’s product, Automated Emissions Reduction (AER), scans power grids throughout 27 countries every five minutes to determine the cleanest available energy sources. The AER can then instruct internet-connected devices to prioritize clean energy when possible.
