Abstract: In recent times energy policies have focused on migration to a low carbon economy to curb the adverse effects of greenhouse gases. This has favoured the adoption of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy which are increasingly being installed in large capacities. The intermittent and seasonal nature of renewable energy sources however presents a situation which requires a modification in the way the electricity grid is controlled. This has given rise to novel research in demand response; a component of the smart grid which leverages modern information and communication infrastructure available to implement a power grid where the consumer plays a more active role than in the conventional grid. This paper draws inspiration from this novel concept to present the design and implementation of a cloud-based energy monitoring and control system for demand response in which energy consumption can be monitored and controlled remotely via the internet.
