Enabling standardized data exchanges for enhanced access, industry connections, and solar marketplace advancements

Data Exchange Catalog Beta

The Solar Data Exchange Catalog has been released! The catalog is open for collection and ready to accept your solar data. We're calling on the industry to help in the effort of priming the catalog with solar data that is compatible with the Orange Button standard.

Making Solar Data Accessible

Orange Button 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 allows for a reduction in soft costs - making it easier to share solar data and speed up processes, like financing.

Discovering and standardizing the most desired sets of solar data is our first priority. Our team is working with state governments, customers, utilities, financiers, solar companies, entrepreneurs, and other industry stakeholders to determine the needs and set data standards. Add your voice to the conversation.

About the Project Partners

The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) is leading a stakeholder and public engagement effort to drive our inefficiencies in data exchanges and discover data needs and gaps. SunSpec Alliance will work with industry to create a uniform data taxonomy and standards, while kWh Analytics will produce a data translation tool to transform existing data into the standard formats to be delivered via an exchange platform developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
