In a smart grid, data and information are transported, transmitted, stored, and processed with various stakeholders having to cooperate effectively. Furthermore, personal data is the key to many smart grid applications and therefore privacy impacts have to be taken into account. For an effective smart grid, well integrated solutions are crucial and for(More)
The smart grid changes the way energy is produced and distributed. In addition both, energy and information is exchanged bidirectionally among participating parties. Therefore heterogeneous systems have to cooperate effectively in order to achieve a common high-level use case, such as smart metering for billing or demand response for load curtailment.(More)
In liberalized energy markets, matching consumption patterns to energy tariffs is desirable, but practically limited due to privacy concerns, both on the side of the consumer and on the side of the utilities. We propose a protocol through which a customer can obtain a better tariff with the help of their smart meter and a third party, based on(More)
Electric vehicles are gaining widespread adoption and are a key component in the establishment of the smart grid. Beside the increasing number of electric vehicles, a dense and widespread charging infrastructure will be required. This offers the opportunity for a broad range of different energy providers and charging station operators, both of which can(More)
For securing the provision with electric energy in smart grids, the ascertainment of energy consumption and production is inevitable in order to be able to apply appropriate control algorithms. As energy management is a highly distributed task, a data network has to exist in parallel to the power network for gathering the required data and applying control(More)
The availability of individual load profiles per household in the smart grid end-user domain combined with non-intrusive load monitoring to infer personal data from these load curves has led to privacy concerns. Privacy-enhancing technologies have been proposed to address these concerns. In this paper, the extension of privacy-enhancing technologies by(More)
