Faraday Grid is delighted to announce that it is a founding Premier member of LF Energy, the Linux Foundation’s initiative developing and sustaining open source technology innovation in the energy and electricity sectors. Matthew Williams, Founder and CTO, Faraday Grid, will also sit on the board of LF Energy.

LF Energy’s aim is to accelerate the global energy industry transition to achieve efficient, sustainable, and distributed power systems. It is a growing community supported by the world’s leading utilities, system operators, system integrators, technology companies, academic institutions, and end-user organisations. These include RTE, ENTSO-E, IBM, OSISoft, Recurve, and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Matthew Williams joined several LF Energy members, including founding members RTE and ENTSO-E in Brussels at InnoGrid2020+ on 13 and 14 May where he introduced new projects that expand the initiative beyond operators and the control room. He also took part in the panel debate “Time to Market: Obstacles to the future grid and how they can be overcome.”

Matthew Williams, Founder and CTO, Faraday Grid said: “The purpose of LF Energy and Faraday Grid are completely aligned and we are proud to be a founding member. To realise reliable, affordable and decarbonised energy systems and drive continued prosperity, we must look beyond the historical technology approaches. We need speed of innovation and the adoption of new processes and practices, with open collaboration at the heart of this to enable prosperous and sustainable energy systems globally.”

"We are thrilled to welcome Faraday Grid as a founding member to LF Energy," said Shuli Goodman, executive director of LF Energy. "Faraday recognizes that modernizing the energy industry is an economic, social, and environmental imperative. Their technical vision and the scope of their platform opens the doors to reimagining the grid for the 21st Century and beyond. Faraday Grid’s support has helped LF Energy to nurture and sustain an ecosystem of open source, collaboratively developed projects that will accelerate the global energy transition.”
