Department of Energy has released a set of voluntary privacy recommendations for smart grid owners, operators, and third parties; industry stakeholders have until October 14 to comment on draft.
The US Department of Energy (DoE) is betting on a voluntary set of standards to guide privacy practices within the smart grid industry.
Earlier this month, the Department publicly released for comment a draft Voluntary Code of Conduct listing a set of privacy recommendations for smart grid owners, operators, and other third parties.
Industry stakeholders have until October 14 to comment on the guidelines and offer their own recommendations for improving them. The DoE will consider the recommended changes, incorporate them as needed, and release a final privacy code of conduct for the smart grid sometime next year.
