LF Energy to Present at Upcoming FERC Software Conference

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will host an event July 9-11 on the topic of “Increasing Real-Time and Day-Ahead Market and Planning Efficiency Through Improved Software”. 

According to FERC, “This conference will bring together experts from diverse backgrounds including electric power system operators, software developers, government, research centers, and academia. The conference will bring these experts together for the purposes of stimulating discussion, sharing information, and identifying fruitful avenues for research on improving software for increased efficiency and reliability of the bulk power system.”

The topic of this event aligns directly with LF Energy’s mission to accelerate the energy transition by building communities to develop open technologies and standards. The LF Energy community has been invited to present four sessions at the event:

  • July 10, 9:15am: Ambient-Adjusted Ratings for Improved Market Efficiency: Design and Implementation; Kwok W. Cheung and Tory McKeag of GE Vernova
      • This session will touch on the LF Energy TROLIE project
  • July 10, 9:30am: Grid-Enhancing Technology Benefit Assessment with Advanced OPF PowSyBl Metrix; Violette Berge, Nicolas Omont, Felipe Gonzales Venegas, and Gladys Leon Suros of Artelys
      • This session will showcase the PowSyBl Metrix tool which is part of the LF Energy PowSyBl project
  • July 10, 12:30pm: Standardizing and Automating DER Company Registration and Connectivity Establishment for Utilities and Other Centralized Systems; Daniel Roesler of UtilityAPI
      • This session will include discussion of the LF Energy Carbon Data Specification
  • July 11, 9:30am: Embracing Open Source and OSS Projects to Improve Energy Market Efficiency and Reliability; Alexandre Parisot of LF Energy

This event will be a great opportunity to highlight how open source is already impacting the energy transition and how embracing it strategically can bring even more speed and scale to decarbonize our energy systems.
