A feasible architectural framework for the smart grid in home areas is provided based on the latest NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S.) smart grid interoperability standards (release 1.0). In this paper, we propose an accountable communication protocol using this architecture with certain reasonable assumptions. Analysis results indicate that our design makes all power loads in home areas accountable.
