Mission:data advocates for customer-friendly energy data access policies throughout the country in order to deliver benefits for consumers and enable an innovative, vibrant market for energy management services. 



 The Mission:data Coalition is guided by these two simple principles:

  1. All consumers should have easy access to the best available information about their energy use (including both “backhaul” information through the utility website and real-time information directly from smart meters) and the ability to easily share that data with energy management service providers of their choice.

  2. Energy consumption and pricing information should be provided in the best available format to support innovative new services (including machine-readable formats that are consistent nationwide and consistent with the best industry standards).
