We only have about 10 years to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions by 40%. Energy is the main producer, but it is what drivers our economy.
We need to use the same principles that were used in the Internet: get things connected. In the old system, you have generation, transportation, distribution. It has been quite monolithic. The new model is massively distributed, connected, variable energy. It is a problem that we, Open Source developers, know to solve, because it’s a networking problem and we’re used to that.
