LF Energy Summit 2018

USD350
LF Energy Summit Logo

LF Energy, a new initiative of The Linux Foundation, provides a neutral, collaborative environment for open source innovation to enable the “electrification of everything to scale.” Together we can transform the world’s relationship to energy. Climate change demands that we accelerate the transition to distributed and variable energy resources. This requires a new power systems paradigm with modern communication infrastructure to safely connect the proliferation of devices and sensors. The first ever LF Energy Summit, part of Open Source Summit Europe hosted by The Linux Foundation, will bring together power system engineers with open source developers to build a vibrant ecosystem of utilities, TSOs, DSOs, vendors, and energy leaders at the genesis of this global effort.

  • In this interactive, participant driven session, we’ll explore opportunities for building the common open source, non-differentiating code that is essential to accelerating the energy transition. Bring your projects, your ideas, and your interests! Participants will be able to share projects they are working on and then self-organize into deep dive breakout groups focused on topic areas that may include (but will not be limited to): operator control and legacy integration; power system simulation, planning, analytics; distributed control and microgrids; automation and orchestration; demand response, curtailment; and smart cities as the first step to aligning interests, establishing community frameworks, and charting the path forward.
