Chairman's View | 2017-06

Posted By: Syed Mir Viewpoints,
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 implementing   new 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 attend the Green Button Alliance's webinar, "Utilities Educating on Green Button," taking place on 28 June at 10:00am PDT / 1:00pm EDT. 
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.
In this issue, we feature  Solar Analytics   in our "Member Spotlight." Founded by top solar industry experts, Solar Analytics is a revolutionary solar-monitoring company that provides intelligent monitoring for residential and commercial solar energy systems. Read about their new "My Solar App" and other offerings below.
Lastly, we encourage our members - utilities, vendors, and affiliate organizations - to attend our Green Button Global Marketing Committee call on   Wednesday 12 July .  For anyone bringing apps utilizing Green Button data to market, it'll be a meeting of interest!
