Real-time Energy Mash-up

Our friends at Rainforest Automation have a pretty cool schtick: the RAVEn. About the size of a memory stick, it wirelessly grabs data from your smart meter. Plug-it-in to your computer’s USB port, and you can track your energy consumption, real-time (most utilities provide only day-old data, even with SmartMeters ™ enabled).

Mash-up real-time energy load profiles

One cool mash-up that we are recommending for the CleanWeb Hack is as follows: Grab a RAVEn unit from the Genability table. (It’s a demo unit, providing an hypothetical energy load profile of real-time data). Mash-up this real-time load-profile into the Tendril APIs, and combine it with pricing data from the Genability APIs, (and even pass this pricing data through Tendril’s much anticipated Pricing APIs) (this is a demo link only).

Also, consider: We have our Price Method (put a price on a specific energy activity) and Calculate Method (in alpha; put a price on any energy load profile, for any period of time). The combined results could be really quite power-ful (pun un-intentional).

    Robb – Way to put the pieces together for would be #Cleanweb hackers! You should have some takers @cleanwebhack this weekend.

    I look forward to getting my hands on a loaner RAVEn.
