Over the past year Todd Park, Chief Technology Officer of the White House, has been leading an effort to open and standardize data collected by the U.S. government, with the aim of sparking innovative businesses — like WattzOn — to use these data sets in their products and services.
Here’s the White House blog post describing this initiative: Introducing Alpha.Data.gov
And here’s the website that serves as the online showcase: Alpha.Data.gov As the name of the URL shows, this is a work in progress, and your feedback is welcomed at the site.
WattzOn is featured on the new site: Click on the green button in the upper right and you’ll see the showcase of energy solutions. We’re under “Your Energy Use”.
We’re delighted to be part of this effort and appreciate the shoutout from the folks at “.gov”!
