Enel, the First European Electricity Company to Join the Global Green Button Alliance

Published on Tuesday, 20 October 2015

Livio Gallo, Head of Global Infrastructure and Networks at Enel, has been appointed member of the Board of Directors of the organisation based in the USA.

Rome, 20 October 2015 – Enel Group has become the first European electricity company to join the Green Button Alliance, a non-profit business association that responds to the White House call-to-action to provide utility customers with access to their usage information in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format.

Enel will test Green Button standards on its Italian customers, especially those involved in projects powered by Enel Smart Info technology; they will be able to download their energy usage data in real time.

Customers involved in the tests will be able to download their energy consumption data with a simply click of the Green Button Download My Data icon, available online on the Enel Energy Management System web application.

With this option they authorize companies to directly collect their energy usage information without having to share their user credentials.

This will improve data collection and analysis and protect the privacy of users. Enel will use the information to develop increasingly advanced applications for customers in fields such as energy efficiency and home automation.

Green Button standards allow Enel Group to improve the value added services it offers to customers.
