Savoir-Faire Linux Launches Its Commercial Open-Source Support for SEAPATH, a Critical Initiative Towards the Decarbonization of Energy Systems.

Paris, June 1st, 2023 – French-Canadian company Savoir-faire Linux, a leader in open-source technological innovation and digital transformation across Canada and Europe, is set to unveil its first-ever commercial support offering for the Seapath project. This key initiative will be launched at two pivotal events in the energy industry: the LF Energy Summit in Paris (France), and the LF Energy Embedded Summit in Prague (Czech Republic).

The SEAPATH virtualization platform (Software Enabled Automation Platform and Artifacts – THerein), initiated by Savoir-faire Linux in collaboration with the French TSO RTE, aims to develop a reference design and a real-time, industrial-grade open-source platform to run virtual automation and protection applications for the electricity network industry, and potentially beyond.

“Facing the challenges posed by energy transition, management of electricity transmission and distribution networks will need rapid evolution,” explains Christophe Villemer, Executive Vice-President of Savoir-faire Linux. “As we strive for energy and industrial sovereignty, control architectures for electrical networks must adapt to accommodate renewable energy integration and new applications like electric mobility. SEAPATH, now ready for deployment, is set to facilitate this newfound flexibility. We’re witnessing a global trend where open source carves out a significant role in digital strategies for electric network operators – a shift also recommended by the International Energy Agency.”

Hosted by the Linux Foundation, where Savoir-faire Linux plays a pivotal role as a key member, the LF Energy Summit is scheduled for June 1st and 2nd in Paris. This event will convene influential stakeholders from electric utilities, technology providers, academia, research institutions, policy makers, and end-users to discuss challenges, innovations, and opportunities in open-source energy, with the goal of accelerating the energy transition and decarbonization of the sector. Savoir-faire Linux will be actively represented at this summit, with company representatives serving as sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers.

Following the LF Energy Summit, Savoir-faire Linux will head to Prague, to participate in the LF Energy Embedded Summit, taking place from June 27 to 30, 2023. This event will focus on embedded technologies and critical systems used in the energy industry. Savoir-faire Linux will share its expertise through presentations and technical discussions, while establishing strategic partnerships with key industry players.

“By offering a commercial support on SEAPATH, our goal is to reinforce our standing as a trusted partner, ensuring industry players – be they energy transporters, distributors, vendors or technology providers – can readily industrialize SEAPATH-based solutions,” continues Christophe Villemer. “It was a clear choice for us to make this announcement at the LF Energy Summit in Paris. This decision mirrors our dedication to actively contributing to the energy transition, and reflects Savoir-faire Linux’s enduring commitment to building a sustainable future.”
