Privacy and smart power meters

Spoke this morning at an interesting workshop on smart meters organised by Consumer Focus. Governments and industry in Europe and North America are moving quickly to roll out "smart meters" for gas and electricity networks in tens of millions of homes. It seems that in this dash, not enough attention is being paid to getting privacy right before tens of billions of pounds are spent on this "smart" infrastructure.
