Join us today, May 22 at 11:30 am EDT as we live tweet (@ENERGY) the Apps for Energy winners announcement event at ConnectivityWeek 2012 in Santa Clara, California. To get real-time updates on the winning applications as they are announced, follow #appsforenergy on twitter.
Launched in early April, Apps for Energy challenges software developers to build web and mobile apps that help utility customers understand and visualize their energy usage data in meaningful ways. The competition leverages Green Button – an open standard for sharing electricity data that is available to millions of consumers and businesses across America. Apps for Energy submissions help consumers utilize Green Button data to save money by saving energy.
The first round of winning apps will be announced as part of ConnectivityWeek, a gathering of smart grid industry leaders in the heart of Silicon Valley. Energy Department Assistant Secretary for Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability Pat Hoffman will announce the winners, selected by our expert panel of judges, during a special Apps for Energy roundtable discussion.
Be sure to check in with us at 11:30 am EDT when we'll begin live tweeting the roundtable discussion – revealing the winning apps to you in real-time as they are announced.
See you later today!
