The Trusted Personal Energy Cloud for the Smart Home
The proliferation of intelligent energy devices and the corresponding tidal wave of energy-relevant data they generate creates a heightened need for data privacy, security, usability, and accessibility. We examine these issues in the context of smart home energy management at the edges of the smart grid. We present the design and implementation of a trusted personal energy cloud, a secure information-centric network (ICN) architecture for personal energy data. We demonstrate how such a layered architecture can be used as the foundation for collaborative analytics in the home and ultimately greater energy savings. Finally, we discuss future directions, including the applicability of the work beyond the home energy domain.
