The Linux foundation accounted the a new name for the Open Smart Grid Platform: Grid eXchange Fabric (GXF). More information can be found on their announcement. The name change is are result of joining LFenergy. Joining LFenergy is an new milestone in a more mature project with overseen by a well known foundation.
To promote the Open Smart Grid Platform within the energy and sustainability field, part of the Open Smart Grid Platform will be present at the Innovative Turth IX in Nijmegen. This Dutch conference covers the field of innovation, sustainable ICT and sustainable Energy. The theme of this year is “The Enabler for Sustainability & Innovation”.
The Open Smart Grid Platform fits in this theme due to the open source nature and use-cases. Open source allows others to innovate on top of existing open source software without (vendor) barriers. The existing Open Smart Grid platform use-cases could support a sustainable energy landscape. Load management helps to integrate renewable energy in the grid by controlling the load when needed. The smart metering domain supports insight in energy consumption and production and can enable flexible tariffs for example.
The Innovative Turth IX conference takes place 19th of June 2017 and is part of sustainable energy week . More information and how to register can be found on their (Dutch) website: https://aninnovativetruth.nl/
The Open Smart Grid Platform will be represented during the IoT Tech Expo in Berlin taking place 13-14th of june at the BCC Berlin Congress Center.
We will share the booth with Smart Society Services (booth 15). Drop by if you have any questions about the Open Smart Grid Platform.
