Consumer Groups Recommend Privacy Safeguards on "Smart Meter" Services

The Trans-Atlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD), a coalition of consumer groups in Europe and North America, adopted a report on privacy and electrical services at the 12th Annual TACD meeting held recently in Brussels. The Smart Meter White Paper warns the "dramatic increase in the granularity of data available and frequency of collection of household energy consumption means that the smallest detail of household life can be revealed." The TACD report sets out recommendations to protect the privacy of users of new energy services. For more information, see EPIC - Smart Grid and Privacy.
