Welcome to the LF Energy Wiki. Here you can access information with a cross project focus. For individual projects, follow the links below. You will need a Linux Foundation ID (created at https://identity.linuxfoundation.org/) to contribute. In the upper right of this page, select Log In to contribute.
LF Energy's technical projects are organized underneath the Technical Advisory Council in order to create specific software or services. Project chairs or leaders report up to the TAC, and projects at the Early Adoption or Graduated maturity level vote on TAC business.
Projects are distinct from technical working groups, which meet to develop or explore specific functional areas, or Special Interest Groups, who meet regularly for discussions but do not have a specific charter.
Grid eXchange Fabric
Control and Monitor Smart Devices
Grid eXchange Fabric (GXF) allows you to monitor and control hardware in the public space. With several (generic) functions ready to use, the main benefits of GXF are: scalability & high availability, high security, its generic design, and no vendor lock-in.

An Effective Distributed Software Platform for Smart Grid Apps
The Resilient Information Architecture Platform for Smart Grid (RIAPS) provides core infrastructure and services for building effective, secure and powerful distributed Smart Grid applications.
A High-Performance Computing Framework For Grid Simulation and Planning
PowSyBl provides the code building blocks for the simulations and analyses of power systems, for horizons from real-time operation to investment planning.
A Smart Assistant For System Operators
OperatorFabric is a modular, extensible, industrial-strength and field-tested platform for use in electricity, water, and other utility operations.
Consistent treatment of energy meter data for demand flexibility
Generates consistent and replicable results by always using the same methods to determine changes in energy consumption-there are no discretionary independent variables that change from calculation to calculation.

Reducing the costs of scaling demand-side energy through collaboration
Energy Market Methods Consortium (EM2) is developing standardized methods, linked to open source code, to enable demand flexibility as a resource, supporting energy programs and distributed energy resource (DER) markets.
Configuration Modules for Power industry Automation Systems
The CoMPAS project was formed to develop open source software components related to IEC 61850 model implementation (profile management) and configuration of a power industry Protection Automation and Control System (PACS). CoMPAS is part of the Digital Substation (DSAS) Initiative.

Technical working groups are organized underneath the Technical Advisory Council in order to perform detailed work in a specific area. Working groups generally work on a specific aspect of the functional architecture. They may have a specific deliverable, and can make suggestions on existing projects or propose projects.
Working group chairs or leaders report up to the TAC, but do not vote on TAC business.
To join any of the technical working groups, please click the mailing list link below and visit their corresponding wiki page.
Architecture standing committee to develop the overall architecture for LF Energy
|functional-architecture||Working group to create a common functional architecture defining a fit-for-the-future power grid and creating a common understanding of required functional capabilities.|
Special interest group on Data Architecture
LF Energy - Special Interest Group on Security
|arch-infrastructure||Architecture: Infrastructure & Cloud special interest group|
Special Interest Groups
|Digital Substation Automation Systems (DSAS)||The design of the new DSAS requires a higher level of modularity, interoperability, and scalability compared to previous generations. Open source collaboration is an essential part of meeting those requirements in a cost-efficient way.|
RTE initiated an internal project aiming at replacing an aging asset monitoring system and paving the way for a shift from preventive maintenance to predictive maintenance.
|Digital Twin||Validate an IoT approach that is compatible with a Blockchain architecture and running on the edge of a distributed cloud environment for a smart energy “System of Systems”|
The Microgrid is in a community building exercise to identify language and approaches. Right now we are looking at a number of open source implementations to understand the pros, cons, and various use-cases. Come join this group! We are open to new participants.
|IoT||LF Energy IoT and Energy|
LF Energy end-user special interest group, comprised of transmission & distribution operators (TSOs and DSOs) and utilities.
|Supply-Chain Security/DBoM||This SIG is looking to stand-up a proof of concept for supply-chain attestation. Broad group of vendors, suppliers, OEMs, security folks, and utilities.|
|E-Mobility SIG||This is SIG is just starting November 10th, 2020...come help us define the future of the open source parts of e-mobility and V2G|
