New Apps/Services, CSWeek Awards, Utility Webinar, & Solar Analytics in the Spotlight

Expanding Green Button Offerings

This is truly an exciting time for the energy industry and their customers as more and more utilities are looking into providing access to energy-consumption data in the standardized Green Button format. In addition, the energy service providers that are already offering Green Button Data are now looking to extend the standard's broad functionality beyond their initial Green Button platforms and are conceiving of—and implementingnew and interesting products and services to address customer needs and regulatory requirements. 
To hear how these innovative utilities are leveraging Green Button, we invite you to view the Green Button Alliance's webinar, "Utilities Educating on Green Button," recorded on 28 June 2017. 
Vendors and third-party Green Button Data application developers are also rapidly bringing outstanding new products and services to market that utilize standardized energy-consumption data and take advantage of the security and flexibility the Green Button standard was designed to ensure. We're impressed and inspired by the remarkable solutions our members are bringing to market. Read about new solutions from Personal BlackBox, London Hydro, Solar Analytics, Energy Toolbase, and ComEd, below.
