Numerous lines of code are being written and hardware schematics drawn for the so-called 'smart grid'. On a social level, we're observing a rapidly rising interest by households and companies for better monitoring and control of their electricity consumption and solar production. Mathias Dalheimer of the mySmartGrid project and myself find that the time has come to organise a barcamp on open-source smart grid technologies. The Fraunhofer ITWM institute in Kaiserslautern is kindly sponsoring this event by letting us use their facilities. So without further ado, here's the open invitation to come to Kaiserslautern on the 29th and 30th of October. We'd love you to actively share your ideas, demo your work and tinker away during these two days. Please let us know you're coming by adding your name to this wiki page. Registration is free as in beer.

Spread the word and I'll see you in K'lautern!
