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.

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.
Improving Data Access to Enable Advanced Analytics and Research Innovation
Provides tools, methods, and data catalogs designed and curated to promote open data exchange within the energy sector.
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.
