Carmen Best, Director of Policy & Emerging Markets at LF Energy general member Recurve, was also the head of EM&V at the California Public Utilities Commission, so she has a unique view on performance-based regulatory oversight with respect to energy efficiency, giving regulators tools to make intelligent decisions about energy.
Last week, she published an excellent article on the way open source can drive better data for energy efficiency in a regulatory environment, with a particularly interesting discussion on open source and collaborative development.
The first ever LF Energy Summit was held recently in Edinburgh, Scotland. This event brought together power system engineers with open source developers to start building a community of utilities, TSOs, DSOs, vendors, and other energy leaders dedicated to accelerating the global effort to transform the world’s relationship to energy.
Shuli Goodman is the founder and Executive Director of LF Energy. During her keynote presentation she put a call out for “10,000 developers to electrify the planet.” Wanting to know more I asked her about about the project, its current status and future plans.

We’re running out of time to tackle climate change. Could an open source, distributed approach build the necessary momentum? Executive director of LF Energy tells Techworld about the new initiative which already has some enterprises on board
The Linux Foundation announced its latest effort on July 12, with the launch of the LF Energy open-source coalition for the energy and power management sector.
The LF Energy coalition is being backed by French transmission system operation RTE, Vanderbilt University and the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSO-E). With LF Energy, the Linux Foundation is aiming to replicate the success it has seen in other sectors including networking, automotive, financial services and cloud computing.
La Linux Foundation (organizzazione non-profit che sviluppa il sistema operativo libero Linux) ha annunciato la nascita di LF Energy, una nuova coalizione open source tra sviluppatori software, enti di ricerca e gestori di rete per creare soluzioni informatiche aperte a disposizione della complessa industria dell’energia.
The Linux Foundation yesterday launched LF Energy, a new open-source coalition. According to the press release, LF Energy was formed “with support from RTE, Europe’s biggest transmission power systems provider, and other organizations, to speed technological innovation and transform the energy mix across the world.” Visit https://www.lfenergy.org for more information.
We are thrilled to introduce the new LF Energy initiative to support and promote open source in the energy and electricity sectors. LF Energy is focused on accelerating the energy transition, including the move to renewable energy, electric mobility, demand response and more.
Open source has transformed industries as vast and different as telecommunications, financial services, automobiles, healthcare, and consumer products. Now we are excited to bring the same level of open collaboration and shared innovation to the power systems industry.
Die Linux Foundation macht jetzt in Energie: LF Energy soll die Softwareseite des Energiesektors nach dem Open-Source-Modell reformieren. Denn die alten Netze stoßen dank neuer Anforderungen an ihre Grenzen.
Nach dem Vorbild der Open-Source-Entwicklung und unter anderem zusammen mit RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Électricité), Europas größtem Energienetzbetreiber, will die Linux Foundation laut einer aktuellen Ankündigung künftig technologischen Fortschritt im Energiesektor fördern und „den weltweiten Energiemix transformieren“. Der Name der Stiftung soll LF Energy lauten, neben RTE sind ENTSO-E (das 43 Betreiber von europäischen Electricity Transmission Systemen versammelt), die Vanderbilt University und das Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) mit an Bord.
