Test Lab

Access to the real interval, time series data needed to turn ideas into a real-life apps

The test lab is the cloud-based sandbox where ideas and energy consumption data converge. It's here where the utility, or DataCustodian, makes available to registered app developers the interval usage data that their retail and commercial customers have permitted them to share by joining the Green Button program.

It's a risk free place to see what works and what doesn't

All that is required is for interested app developers and solutions providers to complete the registration form below. Once registered you have access to the usage data APIs. Whether you're a developer working on an app targeted at consumers or a solutions provider working on a custom program for a large-scale commercial client, the data is all there. You can use it to test prototypes, work out bugs and run simulations before delivering the final product or taking it to market.

Solid reliable data that is continuously being updated in a risk free environment with no associated costs. It just does get any better than that.

Access to current data from your own community and across Canada

Because the design is totally open, all data from all participants conforms to the same consistent Green Button standard and is available and accessible all the time.

Whether you're working on a solution for a local client and only need access their specific data, or you're working on an residential app that has potential for use across Canada; you have access to the reliable and accurate data you need for testing purposes.

Our end-to-end testing with the London Hydro Green Button Test Lab is on track to be far faster and easier than our previous OAuth 2.0 interfaces. We were able to obtain authorization tokens and initial resource downloads in under 4 hours of work, most of which were small tweaks required on our end.
