Energy infrastructure platform uses open source to fight climate change

By Media Coverage

LF Energy is a Linux Foundation project working to accelerate the energy transition of the world’s grids and transportation systems through open source. In December, our project took a major step toward achieving its mission when we and our member organizations Alliander, RTE, and Savoir-faire Linux launched SEAPATH, which stands for Software Enabled Automation Platform and Artifacts.

SEAPATH is a reference design and a real-time, open source platform for grid operators to run virtualized automation and protection applications.

An Open-Source Microgrid Project from LF Energy and Sony CSL

By Media Coverage

Lf Energy and Sony Computer Science Laboratories have partnered to create Hyphae. This new microgrid initiative is aimed at improving performance and achieve zero emissions energy resources.

By taking a microgrid approach, it is possible to modernize the energy distribution network and prepare for future challenges, both supply and mobility.

In an interview with EE Times/Power Electronics News, Shuli Goodman, executive director at LF Energy, and Kotaro Jinushi, business development manager at Sony CSL, highlighted how their collaboration directs the industrial market toward the goal of building an interoperable AC- and DC-ready microgrid that is autonomous, off-grid operational, and able to connect to an electrical distribution grid with utility oversight.

LF Energy announces two open-source initiatives to accelerate decarbonization and the global shift to green energy

By Media Coverage

LF Energy, a Linux Foundation project seeking to accelerate the energy transition of the world’s power and transportation systems through open-source technology, announced two initiatives to accelerate its mission to decarbonize the world’s economies through software, collaboration and leveraged development.

Service-based Open-source Grid automation platform for Network Operation of the future (SOGNO) is a project creating plug-and-play, cloud-native microservices to implement the next generation of data-driven monitoring and control systems. A second initiative, Power System Network Operations (PSNO), is an end-user, utility-driven working group that is defining an open-source strategy and approach to the “control room of the future.”

By Media Coverage
LF Energy is organizing the ‘spring’ chapter of its Energy Summit and TFiR is offering exclusive coverage of the event, bringing to you interviews with executives from the energy industry who are leading the movement within the industry through collaboration and open source. In the first interview from the Summit, Shuli Goodman, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation Energy, talks about the Summit, its focus and how open source is transforming the energy industry.

SEAPATH: A Software Driven Open Source Project for the Energy Sector

By Media Coverage

LF Energy recently announced a new project called, SEAPATH, or Software Enabled Automation Platform and Artifacts (THerein). It’s the second project by the foundation in its Digital Substation Automation Systems (DSAS) initiative. SEAPATH will provide a reference design and a real-time, open-source platform for grid operators to run virtualized automation and protection applications. In this interview, Dr. Shuli Goodman, Executive Director of LF Energy, and Lucian Balea, R&D Program Director and open source manager at RTE joined Swapnil Bhartiya to talk about the project.

LF Energy launches microgrid program

San Francisco-based Linux Foundation nonprofit LF Energy today announced the launch of Hyphae, a microgrid initiative to automate the business-to-business distribution of renewable energy, in conjunction with Sony Computer Science Laboratories Inc., a subsidiary of Sony Corporation. A statement said Hyphae aims to make microgrids more resilient by repurposing Sony CSL’s existing software, Autonomous Power Interchange System, which distributes locally produced renewable energy over a DC grid, to work with AC Grids.

Want To Avoid Another Texas Debacle? Here Is How To Create A Clean, Resilient Electrical Grid

By Media Coverage

For anyone past the denial stage of climate grief, the knee-jerk reaction to news about the increasingly obvious signs of how close the world is to catastrophic climate tipping points is to throw up a few gazillion solar panels.

But shading 21,250 square miles of the Arizona desert is dumb, no matter what Elon Musk might say. The tragedy of it is that Musk is a visionary thinker proposing a solution stuck in an Industrial Revolution paradigm of centralizing production and building out expensive distribution infrastructure.

The Smart Grid Has Its Moment

By Media Coverage, Uncategorized

Happening in the first month of the Biden Administration, Texas’s massive electrical grid failure may have had one good outcome. Cascading effects of loss of power and heat, outrageous bills for the few who did have power, economic shutdown, flooding, fires, etc., provides the best argument possible for quickly developing the Smart Grid that would literally and figuratively power the president’s multi-trillion dollar infrastructure plan to revitalize the economy while reducing global warming.

ITOps Times Open-Source Project of the Week: Hyphae

By Media Coverage

LF Energy and Sony Computer Science Laboratories (Sony CSL) recently collaborated on a new open-source project called Hyphae, which aims to automate the peer-to-peer distribution of renewable energy.

“Sony CSL is a subsidiary of one of the world’s premier companies, and by launching Hyphae with us, they are making a profound statement about their intention to collaborate and lead to solve the world’s most complicated problem — decarbonization,” said Shuli Goodman, executive director of LF Energy. “Working with Sony CSL will help us spur energy transformation in developed countries, as well as bring electrification to energy-poor corners of the planet.”

LF Energy and Sony CSL to Collaborate on an Open-Source Microgrid Project

By Media Coverage, Uncategorized

LF Energy and Sony Computer Science Laboratories (CSL) have announced Hyphae, a microgrid initiative to automate peer-to-peer distribution of renewable energy. The goal of Hyphae is to make microgrids more efficient and the overall grid more carbon-neutral.

Microgrids are segments of larger grids that can disconnect from the larger grid to operate independently. One of the biggest benefit of microgrids is seen to be the resilience they can afford in response to grid disturbances or failures. They also provide a mechanism for attaching renewable energy systems to the grid at large.
