Itron Joins the Green Button Alliance to Help Advance Green Button Standard
Itron Joins GBA to Help Empower Consumers to Manage Their Energy Consumption and to Support Decarbonization Efforts
Joining the GBA as a Participating Member aligns Itron with other forward looking industry leaders and innovators to further the proliferation of standards-based Green Button solutions. Participation also underscores Itron’s commitment to sustainability, grid-edge data standards and the adoption of innovative technology in the energy and water sectors.
With distributed energy resources (DERs) such as residential solar and electric vehicles on the rise, consumer demand and utility and third-party requirements for real-time insight into energy usage continues to grow. Part of Itron’s mission is to help utilities utilize behind-the-meter DERs as valuable grid assets that deliver improved reliability, resiliency, customer engagement and sustainability. Itron will have the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded GBA stakeholders to stay at the forefront of innovation and continue to support grid-balancing efforts as the energy and water sectors evolves.
By joining the GBA, Itron will help maintain the evolving landscape of advanced metering infrastructure and grid edge data. Itron has shipped more than 8 million distributed intelligence (DI)-enabled endpoints, which have the capability to capture real-time data from electric vehicle chargers, solar panels, appliance load profiles, transformer loading and more through DI applications.
Additionally, Itron's innovative DataHub™ platform provides a united, user-friendly platform for utilities and third parties to facilitate the sharing of not just metering and billing information, but also a wide variety of grid edge data. Aligning these solutions with the Green Button standard is critical to ensure all parties have secure access to data needed for a distributed energy future.
“Technology plays a pivotal role in achieving a greener and more sustainable future. Joining a deeply qualified group of leaders can help solve key challenges facing the industry, such as overcoming silos between utilities and consumers with more insight into data and resource usage,” said
“The Green Button Alliance and Itron share a commitment to open, standards-based technologies that enhance utility operations and meet customer needs for high-precision usage data,” said
