Google Powermeter: a real potential for Google or just a side project?

When I search for "power meter" inside Google, the first result
I get is, just guess ... Google powermeter!

But when I look at the website describing Google powermeter,
I find it, to be honest, rather "poor": there are only few utility partners and very few device partners to Google powermeter as of now.

So I wonder if Google powermeter will just remain a side project for Google.

And you, do you think Google will become a major actor on energy usage and smart grid applications?

> yes
> no

Best electrical calculation software review

Following discussions on the forum, you will find in this article the comparison I started to create between 4 electrical calculation software, used for the design and calculation of electrical installation, based on my own experience.

I would be glad to get complementary information and opinions from other users of such electrical software.

The comparison presents the following electrical calculation software:

- XLpro2 Calcul software from Legrand 1.3
- Simaris Design 5.0 from Siemens
- MyEcodial L 3.4 from Schneider Electric
- Caneco BT 5.3 from ALPI (software editor)
