Data Access Initiatives
Green Button mandates, legislation, and regulatory inclusion
The Green Button Alliance operates as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, filing federally in the U.S. as a 501(c)(4). Lobbying is outside the GBA's charter. The GBA assists commissions, governments, and others interested in understanding or implementing Green Button solutions by providing education and helping legislators and regulators understand Green Button technology and benefits. The GBA also maintains and shares news about data access initiatives.
Today, several U.S. states are in process of developing data access policies, or have already mandated utilities provide standards-based Green Button solutions for customers.
Ontario has been at the forefront of Green Button adoption in Canada since its inception; with 2023 being the Year of Green Button in Ontario. Nova Scotia and other provinces are now joining the movement also.
