Green Button Data:

 The Green Button initiative is an industry-led effort that responds to a 2012 White House call-to-action to provide utility customers with easy and secure access to their energy usage information in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format for electricity, natural gas, and water usage.

What Green Button means to them

Member-Representatives of the Green Button Alliance tell their stories...

“Green Button has been instrumental in transforming the way London Hydro engages with our customers. London Hydro deploys Green Button data via cloud computing to enable our residential customers to access their usage data and shift high-peak usage, and for our commercial or institutional customers to manage building energy consumption across multiple facilities and campuses. Green Button is enabling us to offer new programs and services.”

“Green Button removes the manual data-collection and -access barrier for Commercial and Industrial sector users. Building owners and property managers can easily retrieve utility-provided Green Button consumption data in a consistent format across multiple utilities and utility types, arming them with the information and solution-enabled insights to ensure those buildings perform efficiently. This saves time, costs, and the environment.”

“Energyworx delivers insights and business value to energy system operators, retailers, and prosumers. For facility managers, the Energyworx platform monitors and correlates relevant datasources to help manage multiple locations by setting usage thresholds, benchmarking accounts and identifying opportunities to save. Energyworx leverages Green Button to obtain standardized energy consumption data, eliminating the need to support various utility protocols and streamlines the customer authorization process, so our applications can securely access the data.”

“Utility-provided Green Button customer usage data are highly sought-after by solar and solar software companies as it enables solar installers, financiers, and energy service companies to evaluate projects and savings faster and with more accuracy. Public-purpose programs, including demand response and energy efficiency programs, also benefit.”
