Key to substation automation is LF Energy’s Configuration Modules for Power Industry Automation Systems (CoMPAS) project, announced in 2020. CoMPAS should enable grid operators to manage the transition to clean energy by better handling fluctuations in supply from renewable resources and demand from electric vehicles.
As the world begins considering how to move forward after COP26 the role of distribution, transmission, and energy service companies will become critical in decarbonizing power systems and insuring a smooth transition to electric mobility and away from gas, coal, and other fossil-fuels.
FledgePower is a reference project within LF Energy that is built on top of LF Edge’s Fledge – an industrial IoT gateway. What we believe is important and unique about FledgePower is that rather than starting from scratch, the LF Energy and LF Edge developer community added a power systems use case on top of an already widely successful industrial IoT project. That’s where we got the name – FledgePower!
The very ethos of open source and LF Energy is that we can accomplish digital paradigm shifts faster, more securely, and with less costs to the bottomline. We are better together than going at it alone. That collaborative might is needed now more than ever to decarbonize our power grid and, eventually, our economy to save the planet from climate change.
LF Energy Architecture Principles
Version 1.0 of the LF Energy Architecture Principles was recently released by a group of ten industry experts!
The team of individuals leading this effort seek to provide a consistent and measurable level of quality to guide decision-making for LF Energy governance and technical communities.
