CPUC Proposal for an “Energy Data Center”

CPUC Proposal for an “Energy Data Center”

A central database is being proposed to hold California’s smart grid data. The data would be anonymized to protect privacy. According to the Briefing Paper, there are three possible roles for the proposed data center:

1. A depository that contains aggregated and anonymized data and then makes it available to the public or qualified organizations.

2. An independent research center with access to  customer-specific data that publishes results in an  aggregated and anonymized form.

3. A service center for transferring data to governmental organizations that have a non-disclosure agreement with  the Commission.

The CPUC issued a “scoping ruling” this week. Those that are interested should review the terms for public comment and involvement available here: http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/Efile/G000/M031/K744/31744124.pdf

The Briefing Paper can be reviewed here:
