This panel discussion will engage policy makers, advocates, and decision makers on the topic of "Can we be smart and protect privacy while implementing the Smart Grid?" The Smart Grid is the umbrella term for large-scale improvements to our electricity distribution system. Integral to these technological improvements is the dissemination of data from the home through appliances and electricity metering devices.
