Power² – Understanding disruptive powers of IoT in the energy sector

Project Details

Description

IoT is expected to play a major part in the ongoing transition of energy systems. With the possibility of new actors, tariffs, appliances and relationships, IoT could disrupt the energy market – whether for the better or for worse. The notion of “disruption” should not be taken for granted – IoT’s success relies on the software developers’ assumptions as well as the regulatory requirements with regards to security, privacy and data sharing. What arrangements are “good enough” to make IoT work? What are social implications of these arrangements? What are the regulatory gaps resulting from the development of IoT? How to facilitate the development of responsible innovation where IoT is aligned with the policy goals of decarbonisation, affordability and security?

The project will address the above pressing questions by delivering a roadmap for tackling sociotechnical challenges pertaining to security and privacy of IoT in the energy sector.
