Recurve article on open source & energy regulation

By Announcement, Blog, Media Coverage

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.

Linux Magazin: LF Energy: Linux Foundation entert den Energiesektor

By Media Coverage

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.

Golem: Linux-Foundation startet Energieprojekt mit Netzbetreibern

By Media Coverage

Auf Initiative des französischen Übertragungsnetzbetreibers RTE startet die Linux Foundation das Open-Source-Projekt LF Energy. Gemeinsam mit dem europäischen Dachverband und US-Forschungsinstituten soll freie Software zum Betrieb der Stromnetze entwickelt werden.

Die Linux Foundation kündigt mit LF Energy ein weiteres Kollaborationsprojekt unter dem Dach des Industriekonsortiums an. LF Energy entstand offenbar auf Initiative des französischen Übertragungsnetzbetreibers RTE, dem den Angaben zufolge größten europäischen Unternehmen dieser Art. Die im Projekt erstellte Open-Source-Software soll den Betreibern bei ihrer Arbeit helfen und Software zur Steuerung der Netze erstellen.
