Green Button to Open Energy Data Markets

 

The Green Button project is a public and private partnership that may be the future of energy consumption data. Backed by the White House, the program features software that allows energy data to be collected to help document the way we use energy.

 

The Green Button data is collected from utilities that have agreed to participate in the program, which, to date, includes 35 utilities that cover 36 million meters.

 

The energy consumption data is made available in a standard format to its owners, which includes consumers and businesses. The great thing is that the information remains private, so users only see the information that is relevant to them.

 

“Inclusion of energy production data would be a natural evolution, particularly as we move to a more transitive energy market with the technologies to produce electricity as well as consume it. The initiative is off to a great start, a significant amount of future value is yet to be exploited.”
