What is Orange Button Translate?
Orange Button Translate was the first piece of software designed exclusively to support the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office’s (SETO) Orange Button data standards.
Orange Button Translate streamlines data sharing in the market by facilitating the transmission of solar data between developers, investors, and other key stakeholders. This tool is the culmination of a two year award from the DOE, and it supports Orange Button’s goals of reducing transaction costs and increasing bankability.
kWh Analytics was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative to participate in the Orange Button℠ initiative. This industry-led collaboration is aligned with kWh’s broader mission to establish clear data standards, provide transparency for the solar industry, and broaden access to renewable energy. A portion of Orange Button’s $4 million grant helped kWh Analytics implement data driven solutions and boost solar bankability. Other Orange Button grant recipients included the SunSpec Alliance, SGIP, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
