Existing approaches to energy management of large scale distributed systems are ill-equipped to handle the challenges introduced by the dynamic and self-adaptive nature of the Internet of Things. In this position paper we motivate the need for energy-aware modelling and simulation approaches for IoT infrastructures, to facilitate what-if analyses, and support design decisions and runtime optimisation. We identify open challenges and research opportunities in the energyaware simulation and modelling of IoT.
