The depletion of natural resources and increased energy consumption has given greater focus on energy efficiency, with many governments and institutions seeking new technological solutions.IoT has been identified has a promising research field.In the following paper we propose a low-cost open energy monitoring platform based on the MQTT messaging protocol, with great emphasis given to future integration on decentralized IoT networks
