The Google PowerMeter API will allow device manufacturers to build home energy monitoring devices that work with Google PowerMeter. Google PowerMeter allows customers to access their power consumption data through a secure, web-based iGoogle gadget. The data can be published immediately (low latency for the consumer) but is currently limited to uploads at 10 minute intervals.
Google is launching this API to help build the ecosystem of innovative developers working towards making energy information more widely available to consumers. The API provides read and write access to its entities and events through RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
