The ZigBee Alliance is doing interesting things with a new low-power wireless standard based on the mesh concept. One use is for capturing real-time energy consumption patterns, transmitting it wirelessly to databases, and using the information about real-time consumption to enable better energy management. Here’s a deck for more details on ZigBee. Will this take off in the market? Will ZigBee end up having a major impact on energy consumption and conservation? Who knows, but the approach seems to be heading in the right direction.
