Chairman's View | 2015-11

Posted By: Syed Mir Viewpoints,
Welcome to the first GBA "Chairman's View" column.
I believe Green Button is a utility industry-changing initiative that will expand the energy ecosystem, especially 3rd party application development, to help residential and commercial customers manage their energy consumption.
The GBA board members have been actively participating on bi-weekly planning calls and in regular board meetings in the true spirit of collaboration. Like any new organization, we are working on governance, business processes, and strategic planning to become the single, definitive go-to-place for all things related to the Green Button ecosystem -- from development to certification to marketing to education.
In each newsletter, a GBA member will be highlighted in the "Member Spotlight" section. I want to thank PG&E for providing our inaugural 'spotlight' feature below. Also, stay tuned for enhancements to the GBA website which are coming soon and will help make member sign-up and access to Green Button documentation easier.
Feel free to provide us with feedback on our newsletters, including topics for future newsletters.
May the "Green Button Force" be with you!
Syed Mir, Chairman
