From Wikipedia I learned that after the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, a lot of press coverage was given to fundamental changes about to hit the digital world to include digital home technology (also known as home automation). This could very well require a need to establish standard protocols such as U-SNAP. Wikipedia has a substantial article on the "Smart meter" and "Home automation" but no mention of U-SNAP is made. An alliance, called the U-SNAP Alliance, has been formed and according to [248], is gaining support from "Smart Grid" stakeholders worldwide, including utilities, metering suppliers, device manufacturers, industry consultants, and regulators. A Wikipedia article has been written for "Smart grid," but it does not mention U-SNAP.
