6Power Project
Web: www.6power.org/
Description: The main goal of the 6Power project is to contribute to ensuring affordable broadband access and the deployment of IPv6 in Europe. In order to achieve this goal, the project will research the native support and deployment of IPv6, QoS and other advanced services over Power Line Communication networks. The last news entry on its web page is from April 2004, so this is probably no longer an active organization.

Resource Directory pointing to contact inforamtion for most of the industry.

Description: The United Power Line Council (UPLC) is an industry consortium of PLC system producers and utility industry customers (and potential customers). They are a child organization of the
United Telecom Council.  Their BPL information is intended to promote BPL to electric utility industries, not to present utilities with both pro and con information about BPL. UPLC's statements about Amateur Radio have generally been confrontational and polarizing.
