November 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
The EFF-Austin, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

Energy Data Privacy: How Climate Changes Everything

From the Organizers:
Energy data used to be boring. The utility read your meter 12 times a year, and no one cared much about seeing your utility bill history. Nowadays, things are very different. As the $10+ trillion energy transition to renewables ramps up to fight climate change, private energy data access is a critical requirement to deploy and manage distributed energy resources like solar, battery storage, electric vehicles, demand response, and energy efficiency. Also, to make things harder, smart meters are second only to smart phones in how much they know about your day-to-day life. They know when you're home, when you're at work, when you're sleeping, when you're watching TV, when you're taking a shower. So how do we make the switch to a carbon-free future without compromising energy data privacy? What will the future of energy data privacy look like?

Join us for the discussion from 7:00PM-9:00PM, followed by drinks and camaraderie from 9:00PM-10:00PM at Firehouse Lounge (605 Brazos St).
