Meeting Scheduled To Establish Voluntary Smart Grid Code of Conduct

PERSONAL PRIVACY—U.S.

September 28, 2012

In response to workshops on smart grid privacy, a task force will develop a voluntary code of conduct for utilities and third parties providing consumer energy use services, Smartgrid.gov reports. The White House released “Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World: A Framework for Protecting Privacy and Promoting Innovation for the Global Digital Economy,” in February. The blueprint contains an outline for a multi-stakeholder process to develop a voluntary code in order to promote consumer confidence. As such, an initial multi-stakeholder meeting will take place December 6 in Washington, DC, and aims to develop the process and a timeline as well as to establish priorities.
