Open SourceWe use an open source approach, which has proven to be a very powerful mechanism that can lead to global and large-scale innovations and implementations.

We believe that an open source and open innovation approach in the field of Smart Grids, public infrastructures and Smart Cities will lead to

  • an acceleration of (open) innovation
  • encouraging ecosystem development
  • more open standards
  • more use of smart applications
  • reducing (IT) complexity
  • no vendor/technology lock-in
  • lower costs

To ensure future and independent ecosystem development, the Open Smart Grid Platform is available as open source software under the Apache 2.0 open source license and managed by an independent software foundation. The Open Smart Grid Platform is available via Github.
