JOIN US IN THE OPEN SOURCE
FOR ENERGY TRANSITION

Open source has enabled the digital transformation of telecommunications, financial services, automobiles, healthcare, consumer products, and the explosion of technology platforms. 

Power systems – this is our time.

LF Energy is a Linux Foundation project that supports multi-vendor collaboration and open source innovation in the energy and electricity sectors. We are excited to foster progress and a neutral shared environment in this important space.

LF Energy offers two levels of membership for for-profit entities (Premier and General) and an Associate membership level for academic and nonprofit institutions (requires board approval). The legal entity for LF Energy is The Linux Foundation, and membership in The Linux Foundation is required to become a member of LF Energy.

Governance

The Governing Board is responsible for the business oversight of the LF Energy Foundation, with a Technical Advisory Council responsible for assisting in the coordination of, and communication among, the various technical efforts and projects supported by LF Energy. For each project, there is an independent Technical Charter overseen by a Technical Steering Committee. View the LF Energy Foundation Charter and a template for a Technical Project Charter.

JOIN AS A CORPORATE MEMBER

"We are excited to launch LF Energy as an open source ecosystem for the energy and electricity sectors. Open source is a key enabler of digital transformation across industries, and in energy that transformation is already well underway. We’re excited to foster a community that can engage stakeholders and help to modernize the grid to meet the challenges we face as a planet. From sensors and devices, to hardware interoperability that enables demand response, generation, distribution, and transmission systems to communicate, we know this initiative will enable decarbonized electricity to positively affect the lives of billions of people globally."

Jim ZemlinExecutive Director, The Linux Foundation

"No single entity can create, test, and scale the code necessary to bring this new grid to life. We propose that, like other industries, we turn to open source."

Gabriel BareuxDeputy Director of Information & Communication Systems, RTE
