Wireless sensor and actuator networks are a promising tool to support energy monitoring and conservation. However, to date, research in this area has focused upon supporting infrastructure managers, while failing to consider the important role of appliance manufacturers in conserving energy. This paper presents an architectural vision for conserving energy that respects the divergent interests of infrastructure managers and appliance manufacturers . From the manufacturer’s perspective, the system will provide feedback on the performance of appliances after deployment, along with a new mechanism to reach potential customers. From the infrastructure manager’s perspective the system reifies appliance energy consumption data, while providing intelligent suggestions on appliance purchases. In concert, we argue that these features will provide significant energy and cost savings.
