Collecting the data is only half the solution, putting it to good use is the other half.

As valuable as Green Button, and all the real-time, accurate energy usage data it generates, is, it only gets us half way to our goal. App developers and solutions providers are the other half. They are the ones who take this raw data and use it to develop the ingenious apps and tools we need. Without them to transform it into useful intuitive tools and apps that help customers reduce or shift consumption, the raw usage data remains just that, raw data.
