LF Energy is funded through membership dues and contributed engineering resources. Whether your organization is a utility, systems operator, hardware OEM, ISV, sensor device manufacturer, system integrator, or end user—The LF Energy Foundation connects members with the innovative technical projects, companies, and developer communities that are transforming the energy sector. Membership showcases your support for accelerating the energy transition and to building a shared renewable energy future. Members large and small are collaborating across company and country lines to ensure the success of LF Energy, building products, services and solutions on top of LF Energy code bases that are critical to their energy transition strategies.

Join your industry peers in helping build and shape the ecosystem for LF Energy technologies, use cases, and applications. Unite with other global leaders across industries to transform the way energy is generated, transported, and consumed.
Of course, as with all open source projects hosted by The Linux Foundation, we welcome anyone to get involved in LF Energy’s development community. Non-members may participate fully in the technical community with contributions, earn committer, or TSC roles on merit. Please visit the Projects page for details.
