LF Energy Partners with Sony CSL to Launch Open-Source Microgrid Project


LF Energy, Linux Foundation nonprofit seeking to accelerate the energy transition of the world's grids and transportation systems through open source, along with its newest member, Sony CSL, announced today Hyphae, a microgrid initiative to automate the peer-to-peer distribution of renewable energy.

With energy resources and infrastructure increasingly challenged to meet the coming impacts of climate change and natural disaster, Hyphae aims to make microgrids more resilient. It will do so by transitioning Sony CSL's existing software, Autonomous Power Interchange System (APIS), which automatically and efficiently distributes locally-produced renewable energy over a DC grid, to work with AC Grids. With resilient, peer-to-peer microgrid energy trading, even the most remote communities will be able to store and distribute energy autonomously without connecting to large-scale power stations or electrical distribution networks.
