GBA Chairman’s Update

Welcome Exelon Corporation: our Newest Sponsor Member

This month, we're pleased to welcome Exelon, a Fortune 100 energy company with the largest number of utility customers in the U.S., to the Green Button Alliance. Exelon's Chicago-based utility, Commonwealth Edison (ComEd), is deploying Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) across its service area and, as part of its roll-out plan, is making Green Button Connect My Data (CMD) and innovative energy-management applications available to its customers. We're pleased to welcome Jim Eber, manager, Demand Response & Dynamic Pricing at ComEd—who will represent Exelon—to the Green Button Alliance's board of directors. We look forward to continued collaboration with our board and members as we work to achieve and demonstrate successful business models, deployments, and customer adoption of the Green Button energy- and water-data access standard worldwide.

White House Open Data Summit + Solutions Showcase

It was an honor to represent the Green Button Alliance at the White House's first Open Data Innovation Summit with Solutions Showcase on 28 September 2016 in Washington D.C. The Summit provided an excellent opportunity to learn about open data innovation and achievements across several market sectors including health, transportation, and energy and to hear from current and former U.S. CTOs, civic tech leaders, and hackathon winners. My presentation highlighted the Green Button Alliance's vision, goals, and achievements; and referenced Green Button customer use cases, such as a school district, which is using Green Button to access the energy usage of over 160 schools to illustrate the societal benefits enabled by a Green Button ecosystem.

The Green Button Alliance also exhibited in the Solutions Showcase portion of the Summit which attracted attendees from government, utilities, solution providers, and other open-data agencies. The GBA demonstrated the progress of Green Button both in the U.S. and internationally, active utility collaboration, third-party innovation, and the Green Button certification framework; and it was seen as model for other Open Data initiatives.

I also had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with U.S. CTO Megan Smith about how the Green Button Alliance is helping to support the overall Open Data initiative of the White House. The Green Button Alliance's participation at this event, and the recognition Green Button received, was made possible by the great contributions of GBA's members, staff, and the teams at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy & Office of Budget and Management; and the Open Data Foundation.

We look forward to working together as we continue to build-upon the momentum of the White House Open Data Innovation Summit to further demonstrate the value of Green Button for utilities, their customers and stakeholders in the U.S. and around the world.
