How can we combine environmental issues with privacy-friendly solutions? Knowing that privacy comes at a cost of efficiency (in data analysis/predictions/…), what should the red lines be in the privacy VS environment debate? Is the fight for privacy in green policy the beginning of the end for surveillance capitalism?

Following the EU elections results, we were all pleased to see that environmental issues occupied an important role in the rhetoric and agendas of (successful) candidates. Moreover, the newly elected EU commissioner promises to secure a European Green Deal.

Let's chat about ways of building the narrative of privacy-friendly green tech and map existing good practices in the area.

Some background:

Policies and areas where privacy might not be preserved sufficiently are for example smart meters (and energy consumption monitoring in general), and electric cars feeding back electricity to the grid. In the smart meter setting, detailed energy consumption profiles might get leaked. In the electric car setting, location and movement profiles might leak.

Technological tools to preserve privacy, so-called privacy enhancing technologies, are for example differential privacy and secure multi-party computation. This discussion session will not focus on the technical details of those. Rather, we want to hear your opinions on: Where would you draw the line between privacy and effective green policies? How much overhead would be acceptable to make a green policy privacy-preserving?
