We reached common understanding of Energy & Information as contributions to SESA Tasks 4.1 and 4.2

  • the InfoSpots are described in BasicInternet:Solutions, inclusive the process of establishing the InfoSpot and configuration of devices

Thus, we encourage a new platform development as part of the SESA-toolkit.
