The Linux Foundation Transforms the Energy Industry with New Initiative: LF Energy


We are thrilled to introduce the new LF Energy initiative to support and promote open source in the energy and electricity sectors. LF Energy is focused on accelerating the energy transition, including the move to renewable energy, electric mobility, demand response and more.

Open source has transformed industries as vast and different as telecommunications, financial services, automobiles, healthcare, and consumer products. Now we are excited to bring the same level of open collaboration and shared innovation to the power systems industry.

We are also honored that several global, highly influential energy leaders and research institutions are supporting The Linux Foundation including RTE (Europe’s biggest transmission system provider), the European Network of Transmission System Operators, Vanderbilt University and The Electric Power Research Institute.

LF Energy is welcoming four new projects as part of the initiative, and we plan to host numerous information and communication technologies (ICT) that will advance everything from smart assistants for system operators to advanced grid controls, analytics, and planning software.
