Smart Grid Enabled Value-Added Services for Residential and Small Commercial Buildings
Gopal just sent me this on home appliance monitoring: http://www.pointview.com/data/2010/05/38/pdf/Chellury-(Ram)-Sastry-6003.pdf
It's a good overview of the NIALM field, and raises some interesting web 2.0 issues rarely covered by academic literature.
In particular it describes the issues with data ownership and privacy now that cloud computing used to remotely store and process data.
It also mentions smart appliances, which can self report and/or be controlled by a central system. There's a clear application of agents here, and in particular human-agent collectives.
