The U.S. Department of Energy Orange Button Initiative’s goal is to provide a common platform for solar and energy storage companies to exchange data in a standardized format. It provides numerous benefits to the solar industry (and supporting industries) including:
- Reduced software development costs
- Increased software interoperability
- Improved data quality
- Increased data accuracy
- Improved customer experience
- Increased market transparency
The Orange Button Working Group (chaired by Sunspec Alliance, Sandia, Blu Banyan) seeks to create an open data exchange standard for the distributed solar PV industry, thereby accelerating the deployment of solar projects.
