|Exemplary embodiments of the computerized management system for
controlling energy consumption for energy consumers using a smart meter
may include a database that contains contract provisions for energy
consumers. Furthermore, exemplary embodiments of the system include a
database interface adapted to allow the system to access the contract
provisions to optimize energy consumption based upon available energy.
The system may also include a managing data component that is adapted to
manage data between the database and the smart meter. In exemplary
embodiments, a communication network connecting the system to the
database and the smart meter may be included. Additionally, some
exemplary embodiments of the system include a protocol converting
component that is adapted to act as an interface for application
programming or protocol converting.
