Comments Of The Electronic Privacy Information Center To The National Institute Of Standards And Technology: “NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards Release 1.0 (Draft)”

EPIC Urges Government to Protect Privacy in the Smart Grid

On November 10, 2009, EPIC filed comments with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), urging it to implement robust privacy protections in the Smart Grid. The Smart Grid refers to a host of technologies that will allow unprecedented communication between American energy providers and energy consumers. However, it will also dramatically transform the ability of providers of power services in the United States to track the activities of consumers. For that reason, EPIC urged NIST to establish comprehensive privacy regulations that limit the collection and use of consumer data.
