The deployment of a sensor network plays an important role in implementation of the smart grid. An integrated sensor system is proposed in this paper, which is built with an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) structure. A functional wind monitoring sensor network and an indoor environment monitoring sensor network are described from a design and implementation aspect. With the concern of energy efficiency, a Multiple Access Control (MAC) mechanism is designed for a ZigBee network and a UDP-based communication strategy is used to achieve a high sampling frequency. Additionally, multiple energy-aware programming skills are talked from a practical aspect, as well as an energy harvesting strategy and a power consumption survey of this system. Based on the data gained by the system, initial data analysis and visualisation results are also presented.
