Powerful news today about opening access to energy data!
“Following the President’s direction, the Federal Government is committing to use the Green Button data standard—an industry-developed consensus-driven method for accessing and transmitting energy-consumption information—within its own operations and facilities, making it easier for building managers to use innovative analytical tools, apps, and services related to energy usage, and helping Federal agencies to better manage their own energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
