We can design a robust HW/SW platform for smart grid and provide services / solutions. This is a global tendency, is time for enter to the game :)

In my last meeting on PireneLab I was asked for energy measurement> Hi,

> integrate this initiative to Qi community projects.
> A smart grid based on open technologies has not been tested before and

> Virtually all major players are interested in the SmartGrids

solutions many times, put an Ethernet port, and low power consumption
to that device and they will be a lot of eyes on it.
