John Gorman (of SolarNetwork fame) and I are speaking tonight in Auckland at a joint IET and ESR meeting. Our topic is "Renewable energy, Smartgrid and Electric Vehicles as they fit into an open-source context". Details on the talk are available here.
This is the first public airing of where we are heading with Greenstage Power (a subsidiary of Greenstage), as we move to leverage SolarNetwork (and to a lesser degree Tumanako) technology to offer serious commercial solutions for distributed generation and demand side response services using Open Source technology.
If you are in Auckland come and check it out, its a free event.
