Companies are playing an increasingly big role in tackling climate change, but they’ll go much farther, faster, if they collaborate on technological innovation than if they go it alone.
As climate change threatens the very existence of the planet, the role of companies to battle back is finally hitting a fever pitch because they recognise that the future of the global economy is a low carbon one.https://www.computerweekly.com/blog/Green-Tech/How-open-source-technology-collaboration-can-help-in-the-fight-against-climate-change
Over the past few years, corporations and cities wanting to up their game in the effort to combat climate change have pledged to run on 24/7 carbon-free energy. But for these kinds of pledges to become reality, 24/7 carbon-free energy requires something that so far has been lacking: a commonly accepted standard for how to track and confirm those hour-by-hour carbon-free energy trades.
Shuli Goodman talks a lot about building the next generation of clean energy, but she doesn’t just mean erecting fields of solar panels and wind turbines. As the director of Linux Foundation Energy (LF Energy), launched by the nonprofit Linux Foundation in 2018, she’s interested in another kind of infrastructure that she says will be essential to moving the world’s grids away from fossil fuels and cutting carbon dioxide emissions: open-source software.
Today, much of our power system essentially runs on a hundred-year old model. Centralized power plants, often running on fossil fuels, produce a constant stream of energy, which is pushed out along a grid: first along long-distance, high voltage transmission wires, and then into lower voltage community energy systems.
