Using Internet to Control Electricity Bills
Even if new buildings are connected to Internet, they usually don't communicate between themselves. And when it comes to electricity, these buildings are selfish and consume what they want without any coordination. Now, a system developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is using Web services to collectively adjust power usage to variations in price.

In "Internet ups power grid IQ," Technology Research News reports that the system was successfully tested for two weeks on five commercial buildings. "Beyond price, systems could be programmed to respond to changes in air quality or to tap into sustainable energy sources."

You'll find more details, pictures and references in this overview.
