Open Source Innovation to Power the Energy Transition
As we end 2018, I wanted to reengage with the growing Linux Foundation Energy (LF Energy) community to say thank you for being on the frontlines of transforming our global electricity systems. Our work is an epic responsibility given the pressing planetary issues we face in the next 10 years to globally reduce carbon from our electricity and transportation sectors by 40%, and then by 2050, to get to 100% to mitigate the worst of the climate crisis.
With your participation, leadership, and membership in LF Energy we can accelerate the energy transition to decarbonize the world’s economies. There is no better home for building the shared technology innovations that will speed the energy transition, than the Linux Foundation. The LF has provided the neutral home for some of the greatest industrial transformations of our time — whether the Linux OS, or in networking, automobiles, banking, blockchain, cloud, and deep learning.
It is with excitement, that I invite you to join LF Energy either as a founding Governing Board member, or as a General or Associate member. Together we will define, build, and support the shared digital foundations to speed the energy transition. This is your opportunity to have a seat at the table from the beginning and we need you there!
All our Q1 efforts are pointed towards the Linux Foundation’s Open Source Leadership Summit in Half Moon Bay, March 12-14, 2019. This is an invitation-only event for member companies and where LF Energy will have its first Governing Board meeting. We are planning to announce the LFE Founding members in early 2019 ahead of this event.
If you would like to talk about corporate or organizational membership, please feel free to reach out to me or please make a meeting here. I am happy to send additional information and also discuss your vision and needs.
In closing, I also want to thank the pioneer attendees who came to the inaugural LF Energy Summit, October 24th, in Edinburgh, UK. The event was a great success and brought together power system engineers with open source developers to start building a community. You can find all the great content from Edinburgh available for viewing here.
I want to wish you a very healthy and happy New Year. 2019 and 2020 are going to be two of the most important years of our lives. Let’s do this together. We’ve got this!
Executive Director, LF Energy
