Mississauga, Ontario Dec 8, 2023 (Issuewire.com) - Rodan Energy Solutions is pleased to announce that they have made their first connection to a secure Green Button Platform in Ontario with the ability to service commercial and industrial customers using the Connect My Data standard. Rodan is the latest Green Button application provider to be authorized and securely connected to London Hydros Green Button Platform, enabling Rodan to efficiently capture data that helps manage demand response programs for large energy users.
Green Button® Download My Data® (DMD) and Green Button® Connect My Data® (CMD) are the energy industrys standards for enabling easy access to and downloading or authorized sharing of, utility-customer energy, natural gas, and water usage data.
The Government of Ontario has mandated all utilities in Ontario to implement Green Button by the end of November 2023, to facilitate easier access to customer data to support energy efficiency, project measurement, and demand response.
The standardized Green Button format allows Rodan to create and offer products and services based on energy usage gathered directly from customer meter data, fostering a more rapid rise in innovative solutions among application developers.
New third-party Green Button applications enable simplified and greater customer participation in Demand Response (DR), that utilize interval data. In addition, Green Button CMD platforms can provide a path forward for integrating customer-sited Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) into the grid.
Rodan Energy Solutions is very pleased to be at the forefront of this exciting new Green Button initiative with London Hydro and Fanshawe College. As a technology leader of energy intelligence and DER operations, Rodan welcomes the opportunity to enhance its energy intelligence portfolio to better service its customers.
Andre Sochaniwsky, Senior Director of Technology and Enterprise Data, Rodan Energy Solutions
Fanshawe College was the first to provide Rodan with permission to access meter data for their facilities via London Hydros Green Button Platform, which allowed Rodan to provide Fanshawe with daily electricity demand information.
