LF Energy – the open source foundation focused on the power systems sector and provides a neutral, collaborative community to build the shared digital investments that will transform the world’s relationship to energy is announcing FledgePOWER as its latest Incubation Project.
Robert Tusveld, Solutions Architect at Dutch distribution system operator Alliander, introduces Grid eXchange Fabric (GXF), an LF Energy project. Robert will offer an overview of GXF’s history, followed by a deep dive into the technology along with use cases, and a Q&A session at the end.
Formerly known as the Open Smart Grid Platform, Grid eXchange Fabric (GXF) allows you to monitor and control hardware in the public space. With several (generic) functions ready to use, the main benefits of GXF are: scalability & high availability, high security, its generic design, and no vendor lock-in. GXF has several working use cases, including microgrids, smart metering, public lighting, and distribution automation.
