Smarter Privacy

The aim of the joint project “Smarter Privacy” is to develop an ICT-based platform to support legally compliant information processing on the Smart Grid using a system to technically determine legal consequences for distribution network operators. This generic modelling platform is designed to assist lawyers in formally describing data protection and energy management laws and regulations when developing Smart Grid and electromobility services. It uses methods and technologies from the “THESEUS” research programme to map formal rules equivalent to legal norms and the ontology of legal terms. Its application lies in the development of legally compliant information services according to the “Privacy by Design” concept in the fields of renewable energies, electromobility and Internet of services/cloud computing.
