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.
