A "Consumer Grid" provides the individual-based counterpart to the organisation-based computational Grid. We describe a Peer-to-Peer system for utilising computational resources on the Grid -extending existing work undertaken in systems such as Entropia and SETI@home. The potential of such a distributed computing resource has been in some ways demonstrated recently by the SETI@home project, having used over 650,000 years of CPU time at the time of writing. A user develops applications within

Triana will also be deployed as the workflow enactment engine along with the Grid Application Toolkit (GAT) within the European GridLab project.
