Guidelines for Smart Grid Cyber Security: Privacy and the Smart Grid is now available from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The NIST Smart Grid Guidelines address privacy concerns that arise from the "many new data collection, communication, and information sharing capabilities related to energy usage." EPIC coordinated extensive comments for the agency from a group of 23 NGOs, legal, and technology experts. EPIC also worked closely with the NIST Cyber Security Working Group's subcommittee on Privacy on the project. For more information, see EPIC's The Smart Grid an Privacy.
