Europe’s Two Largest TSOs Discuss the Call to Open Source and Joining Linux Foundation Energy

TenneT and RTE strategy directors Loek Bakker and Lucian Balea have an open and frank discussion with Shuli Goodman, Executive Director of LF Energy about the benefits and costs of utilities adopting open source as a path to drive the energy transition. They discuss their strategies, internal alignment process, and decision to join LF Energy.

As the two largest transmission system operators in Europe, RTE and TenneT operate with 99.99% grid availability. To enable the energy transition, all utilities in Europe must deliver on a future in which wind and solar energy are the most important primary sources to produce electricity, while continuing to provide security and stability of service. Digitalization is central to this distributed future. Across sectors, the adoption of open source and collaborative development have been critical to the paradigm shifts that have enabled digitalization by increasing the pace of innovation, faster time to market, lowering costs, breaking vendor lock-in, and insuring security.

Open source refers to a software development model that encourages open collaboration to create software for which the original source code (design, code, ingredients) is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. This conversation will look at the internal strategies of these two TSO as they seek to find a path forward to address the intersection of energy, open source, and digitalization.
