Smarter Privacy

The aim of the joint project "Smarter Privacy" was to develop an ICT-based platform to support legally compliant information processing in the smart grid using a system for technical legal consequence determination for distribution grid operators. In the creation of smart grid and electromobility services, this generic modelling platform should support lawyers in the formal description of laws and regulations in the area of data protection and energy industry law. For this purpose, methods and technologies from the "THESEUS" research programme were used for the mapping of legal norm-equivalent formal rules and legal term ontologies. The exploitation was to take place for the development of legally compliant information services according to the concept of "Privacy by Design" in the areas of renewable energies, electromobility and Internet of Services / Cloud Computing.
