Smart Meters–Smarter Practices recommends ‘open innovation’ approaches to the smart grid based on collaboration and co-creation that “respect security issues, human rights, public health, the environment and the need for beneficial best practice and timely innovation”.
“Those who fail to address such issues may leave themselves at increased risk of economic destabilization, public distrust and ever increasing lawsuits. Cost effective ‘Win/Win’ solutions that benefit the individual, national economies and the environment should be sought wherever practical.”
Dr Isaac Jamieson is a scientist, architect and built environment consultant specializing in the design and enhancement of bio-sustainable environments and technologies. He was Honorary Secretary and Treasurer of the Electrostatics Group of the Institute of Physics from 2008 to 2011, and is presently a scientific adviser on stakeholder groups in the EU and UK involved in policy decisions for the creation of healthy environments at national and international level. In addition to this he has in the past undertaken work for the Lifelong Health Project at Imperial College London, related to the development of environmental design factors and preventive interventions aimed to encourage healthy aging and enhance well-being. He undertakes freelance consultancy work, private commissions and international research collaborations. He organized the International one-day conference ‘Electromagnetic Phenomena and Health – a Continuing Controversy?’ at the Institute of Physics in London in 2008.
