Spreading Smart Grid technologies will be inherently difficult without addressing end-user concerns and actively managing user acceptance by providing secure methods and demonstrating safety of user data and privacy. Privacy, security, and user control in the smart grid user domain are critical for establishing user trust and enabling user participation.
The aim of the Center for Secure Energy Informatics is to develop methods to sustain privacy and security in intelligent energy systems. Together with our research and company partners we are working on algorithms and architectures to make the digitalization of our energy systems more secure and privacy-preserving.
The Center for Secure Energy Informatics developed from the Josef Ressel Center for User-Centric Smart Grid Privacy, Security and Control.
