Description of Green Button Roundtable

Initiated by the U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra at GridWeek 2011 in September, the Green Button challenge was presented to the Smart Grid industry to create the necessary standards and enabling framework for use by utilities who will, in turn, provide a consistent manner of presenting energy information usage to consumers.

Modeled after the hugely successful Blue Button initiative that makes medical records available to patients, when implemented widely the Green Button is set to change the dynamics of consumer awareness of their energy. The availability of energy usage data in standard format is also anticipated to unleash a wave of innovative applications and services that consumers will find invaluable when managing their energy consumption.

The Green Button Roundtable will discuss the status of this initiative with a cross section of players in the Smart Grid arena.
