Data Privacy and Security for Smart Meters - Response to Ofgem's Consultation
This is a response to the consultation on 'Smart Metering Implementation Program: Data Privacy and Security' published by DECC/Ofgem on 27th July, 2010. While the authors commend Ofgem for taking into account the importance of security and privacy, they would like to point out several areas where more work is needed. They support Ofgem's policy of assigning the ownership of meter data to the customer, as they suggested in the own work1. This consultation however suggests that the customer will have to pass on data required for 'Regulated Duties'.
