Presentation Template

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.

Current Projects





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.

Current Initiatives

Digital Substation (DSAS) - CoMPAS is the first project underneath the Digital Substation initiative. 

Working Groups

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.

Working groups are distinct from Projects, which create software or services, and Special Interest Groups, which meet regularly for discussions but do not have a specific charter.

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-architectureWorking group to create a common functional architecture defining a fit-for-the-future power grid and creating a common understanding of required functional capabilities.

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.

Asset Monitoring

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 TwinValidate 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.

IoTLF 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 SIGThis is SIG is just starting November 10th, 2020...come help us define the future of the open source parts of e-mobility and V2G
