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 Josef Ressel Center for User-Centric Smart Grid Privacy, Security and Control is to implement a comprehensive trust framework in the smart grid user domain. In collaboration with our company partners, this framework will be integrated into real-world test pilots. Through the methods developed in the Josef Ressel Center trustful user interaction in the smart grid user domain will be enabled.
