Energy efficiency is decisive for the success of any business. For this reason, the implementation of an Energy Management System is highly advisable. A key component of energy management is monitoring. This paper details the hardware implementation of a low cost and highly scalable energy monitoring solution based on the Raspberry Pi and Arduino platforms, and aimed at non-domestic use.
