Big Data: Little Orange Button

January 19-20, 2017
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa, San Diego, CA

This session will address the challenges of non-standardized data in asset management, the complications that it presents, and examples of situations where standardized data would have provided more effective asset management. Additionally, the discussion will include a review of the U.S. DOE-funded SunShot initiative Orange Button, which “…supports the creation and adoption of industry-led open data standards for rapid and seamless data exchange across the solar value chain from origination to decommissioning. Standardizing data will allow for a reduction in soft costs by making it easier to share solar data and speeding up processes like financing. SunShot defines success of this program as the wide adoption of data standards by stakeholders representing at least 60% of the U.S. solar industry, in terms of deployed and distributed solar assets.”
