The idea is to build a cloud connected electric power meter as a man-in-the-middle plug for the European grid that would be a non-invasive way to measure the electric power consumed by the appliance. As a cloud back-end I would like to use phant.io. I would like to expand the OpenEnergyMonitor to include this a as an another measuring node, utilizing their software UI, if such a thing is possible/reasonable. Another idea is to measure how much power is dissipated globally by the SMPS chargers plugged in when not charging, to spread the awareness about the power wasted. This experiment would require multiple people participating, using this meter for instance.
The project is fork of my Master Thesis and now falls under MIT license.
