The Linux Foundation Energy set out on a mission to transform the energy sector through open source investment and collaboration. This survey-based research furthers this cause by exploring the adoption of open source technology stacks vital to achieving climate targets. It also intends to provide actionable insights stemming from the state of digital transformation readiness among energy stakeholders and the identification of existing gaps in educational tooling.
This report finds that energy stakeholders are on the path of digital transformation and are keen to adopt open source technology. Although intentions and first steps are visible in the sector, we are yet to see industry-wide full adoption and magnified contribution to open source. The training and upskilling of the energy sector workforce will play a crucial role in this effort.
