This paper introduces a proposal for a smart grid management platform built on the distributed programming paradigm. Besides it is based on an information model and event architecture. The information model defines a set of clear interfaces to manage every "grid node". We built an actual implementation of a low-cost embeddable control/meter device that may even be attached to individual appliances. These devices behave as conventional autonomous remote distributed objects and provide full support for the information model and also for integration with the communication middleware. The resulting event architecture provides great flexibility to manage information flows from services and applications.
