Open Minds and Open Source: Linux Foundation LF Energy Introduces Two Initiatives Designed to Reduce Carbon and Shift to Sustainable Energy

Building on its groundbreaking initiative, the Linux Foundation’s LF Energy announced it has introduced a Service-based Open-source Grid automation platform for Network Operation of the Future (SOGNO) and Power System Network Operations (PSNO) designed to advance energy automation and hardware virtualization.

The LF Energy project provides a 21st-century plan of action to solve climate change through open frameworks, reference architectures, and a support ecosystem of complementary projects, seeking to accelerate the energy transition of the world’s power and transportation systems through open-source technology.

LF Energy announces two open-source initiatives to accelerate decarbonization and the global shift to green energy

“The shift to renewables doesn’t come with the flip of a switch and is a monumental effort requiring collaboration on a global scale,” said Dr. Shuli Goodman, executive director of LF Energy. “Decarbonization is a complex problem, and it’s only growing more complex as new technologies demand more from power system networks. The evolution of a low-inertia grid due to the onboarding of distributed energy resources is requiring that network operators find new mechanisms to balance supply and demand through flexibility and automation. With collaborative, open-source initiatives like SOGNO and PSNO, we can overcome these challenges.”
