We believe in the power of an open source community. This is why all our solutions are Open Source. All parties are free to use our international standards. EFI and EF-Pi are suitable for all appliances, of whatever make or model. Having an open standard also encourages the continuous development of new applications.
We strongly encourage everybody to give back their findings and improvements to the community so the technology can grow as a whole.
We believe that open sourcing our solutions is essential to be successful in the smart grid world where most solutions are still proprietary. We are convinced open sourcing will boost our solutions to become a worldwide standard. In the near future a lot of (smart) devices have to be connected to the smart grid. We believe setting a standard will be encouraged if major parties will participate. A much more efficient strategy then trying to connect every single device to our system ourselves.
All our software code is available on our github platform including documentation and a set of tutorials. Github enables social coding, easy version control and the reporting of issues. The community welcomes new developers and contributions. It is not obligatory to be part of the alliance in order to contribute.
FlexiblePower Application Infrastructure – Applications. This repository contains all the open source drivers, smart grid applications and other apps that the FAN supports. The main purpose of these bundles is for demonstration purposes.
