Green Button Alliance

GBA Chairman’s Update

Board Election, Spotlight on PBB, New GB Video & Resources

Election of Participating Member Representatives

The Green Button Alliance recently held its first annual board of directors election. We're pleased to announce Cengizhan Yenerim, Director, Demand Risk Management, at Think Energy (ENGIE Resources) was elected to serve in a two-year seat and Elena Lucas, CEO of UtilityAPI was elected to serve in a one-year seat. We welcome Cengizhan and Elena to our board and look forward to working closely with them as we guide the Alliance to fulfill the vision for Green Button and enable consumers and companies to access and securely share energy and water usage data to efficiently manage resource consumption.

Benefits of Green Button

As utilities around the world determine the best approach to make energy and water usage data available to customers, the benefits of the Green Button standard are clear and have been proven in North America. The Green Button standard enables utilities to provide a common, easily accessible data format, assures secure data exchange, supports value-added services and opens up the energy management applications and services market to utilities─all while enabling utilities to focus on their core business. In this issue, Green Button Alliance member, the Advanced Energy Centre (AEC), offers a new article that discusses the benefits of the Green Button standard, includes a new video highlighting the real-world benefits to large commercial customers and includes findings and reports from the successful implementation of the Green Button Connect My Data (CMD) pilot project in the province of Ontario, Canada. We encourage utilities contemplating customer data access initiatives to review these useful resources.

Member Spotlight: Personal BlackBox

This month, we're also pleased to feature Personal BlackBox (PBB) in our "Member Spotlight." Read how PBB's new ecosystem platform and Greenr application uniquely enable consumers, energy companies and brands to securely share data and gain benefits.

This is truly an exciting time for utilities, service and application providers, and customers around the world. We look forward to working together to continue to demonstrate the value of Green Button as an open, unifying and secure methodology specifically designed to help the industry and their customers to efficiently access, share and benefit from energy- and water-consumption data.
