May 9, 2009


Abstract:     
This paper examines the many competing policy issues surrounding the development of the smart grid, including supporting technological innovation and protecting consumer privacy. The paper uses potential privacy-protection regulation as a lens through which to envision smart grid development, as privacy protections will determine, in many ways, information flows and network architectures. The paper concludes with recommended structures for regulating the disclosure and trafficing of smart grid information about consumer electricity usage.

This paper was originally presented to the Colorado Public Utitlies Commission in May 2009, and then was used as a framing document in opening the Colorado PUC's investigatory docket concerning smart grid privacy concerns: Docket No. 09I-593EG.
