A revolution in utilities domain is underway, namely the Internet of Energy. Networked Embedded Devices (NEDs) are making the electricity grid itself, the homes and the factories smarter, increasing the possibilities of collaboration among them. It is expected that NEDs will offer their functionality as one or more services, one of which will be a real-time measurement of the energy they consume or produce. In such highly distributed heterogeneous infrastructures it is clear that the metering goes beyond the classical understanding; it is becoming ubiquitous, distributed and will be the core for future value added services. Modeling such dynamic event-based systems is a challenging approach. We focus our work on simulating large scale infrastructures where multiple web-service enabled devices offer metering data on an event based mode and provide some metrics for evaluating them.
