LF Energy, the open source foundation dedicated to decarbonizing global economies, has seen significant progress with the addition of new members, software releases, research reports, and participation in industry events. This demonstrates the growing commitment to LF Energy’s mission of creating a technology ecosystem to support rapid decarbonization.
Within the past year, LF Energy has experienced substantial growth in hosted projects, unique contributors, commits, and lines of code added. This progress is crucial in meeting the ambitious decarbonization goals set by national and international bodies. The energy sector is embracing open source, recognizing its potential for innovation and digital transformation.
To provide insights into the energy transition and open source’s role, LF Energy has released three research reports. The 2023 Energy Transformation Readiness Study reveals that energy stakeholders are implementing digitalization plans, with a majority already using open source software. However, consensus within the energy industry is seen as essential for increasing open-source adoption.
Another report, “The Open Source Opportunity for Microgrids,” explores how open source technology can accelerate the adoption of microgrids worldwide. Microgrids are groups of distributed energy resources that improve energy resiliency, and the report highlights their potential for enhancing energy infrastructure.
LF Energy has also conducted events to share knowledge and promote collaboration. The LF Energy Summit in Paris focused on developing new technologies for clean energy resources, electrification infrastructure, load balancing, and interoperability. The LF Energy Embedded Summit in Prague discussed how IoT and hardware can drive decarbonization.
Several LF Energy projects have issued major software releases, including Arras, FlexMeasures, OperatorFabric, Power Grid Model, and PowSyBl. These projects contribute to the development and deployment of smart grid technology, energy management systems, and power system analysis.
LF Energy’s efforts to advance decarbonization through open source collaboration are making significant strides. With the support of new members and the release of innovative software and research reports, LF Energy is bringing together the energy sector to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future.
