    EV: Smart Grid

    app is on the way

    BURLINGTON — Efficiency Vermont will participate in the Green Button initiative, a national effort to provide Smart Grid-based energy usage information to consumers in a standard format.

    Consumers can use this information to help them make informed decisions about how to save money and energy through a variety of Green Button-compatible apps.

    “Green Button is an innovative approach to helping consumers get the most of the Smart Grid,” said Efficiency Vermont director Jim Merriam. “It will provide Vermont businesses and families with the ability to better understand their energy use, and take actions to save money and energy. Efficiency Vermont is excited to be part of this initiative to help Vermonters take control of their energy use and costs.”

    Launched in January, Green Button is based on a consensus industry standard that was created through a public-private partnership with the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

    Efficiency Vermont’s support for Green Button builds on its recent work to focus on how consumers can maximize the benefits of Vermont’s $138 million investment in Smart Grid infrastructure across the state

    The Green Button icon will be accessible at www.efficiencyvermont.com in mid - 2013.
