I am a graduate of Computer Science at the Uppsala university Sweden www.uu.se Information Technology Uppsala I have been working the filed of energy and smart homes and energyefficiency since 1996 and have been working a broad flora of tools to measure control and make energy efficiency happen.
- Many years of smart energy services for the large utility Vattenfall
- Working alot with various sensor networks such as LonWorks / LonMark, Modbus, IEC1107, Mbus, wMbus RS485 related.
- Created the system for eneregysavings company 
- Working in the Swedish research company Sustainable Innovation  with energy efficiency
I haven't done any standardisation project but have a broad knowledge of using protocols and what's needed to make them useful
My XMPP intrest
I have seen so many "final solutions" for the inetroperabilty problem regaring intelligent energy control so far I've never seen anything having sucha a potential as XMPP and the extensions for IoT Earlier attemts such as CORBA and OSGI and know the latest Fi-ware has never made me belive it is possible to move from legacy standards and zigbee and the alike
My solid feeling is that IP togheter with extensions on XMPP is the only distributed solution that can do the trick to open up the energy sector and move data easily between company borders
