Google to track your energy use

Posted on Tuesday, February 10 2009 @ 23:33:13 CET by


NY Times reports Google unveiled a free web service named PowerMeter, it enables consumers to track energy use in their house or business as it is consumed. To use the service you'll need to use devices that can feed data into PowerMeter technology, but currently Google hasn't lined up any hardware manufacturers yet.
Google is counting on others to build devices to feed data into PowerMeter technology. While it hopes to begin introducing the service in the next few months, it has not yet lined up hardware manufacturers.

“We can’t build this product all by ourselves,” said Kirsten Olsen Cahill, a program manager at Google.org, the company’s corporate philanthropy arm. “We depend on a whole ecosystem of utilities, device makers and policies that would allow consumers to have detailed access to their home energy use and make smarter energy decisions.”

“Smart grid” is the new buzz phrase in the electric business, encompassing a variety of approaches that involve more communication between utility operators and components of the grid, including transformers, power lines, customer meters and even home appliances like dishwashers.
