Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that for the second time there will be an Energy
devroom at FOSDEM. The dedicated Energy devroom will foster the broad
collaboration that is needed to successfully transform global energy
systems though open source.

Representatives of open source project communities working in the energy
space are encouraged to apply to present to the community at FOSDEM by
sharing your project, experiences, and thought leadership.

## Call for participation

Energy Devroom: “Reimagining the Energy Ecosystem through Open Source”

We are seeking presentations related to energy systems and energy usage.
Project overview presentations are welcome, however tangible applications
and use-cases are preferred, as are stories and lessons for community
building in the energy industry.

We anticipate topics such as scheduling energy consumption, electric
vehicle charging infrastructure, metering and measurement systems,
microgrid controls, applications for going off-grid, and more. If you are
unsure about what direction to take a topic, please reach out so we can
assist you.

Talks should be aimed at a technical audience, but should not assume that
attendees are already familiar with your project or how it solves a given
problem. Talk proposals may cover very specific solutions to a problem, or
may be a higher level project overview, particularly for lesser known
projects. Recordings of the 2023 Energy devroom sessions can be viewed at
https://archive.fosdem.org/2023/schedule/track/energy/, which may be useful
background when preparing your proposal.

Please feel free to suggest a duration between 20 minutes and 55 minutes
but note that the final decision on talk durations will be made by the
devroom managers based on the number of received proposals. We may decide
to schedule shorter slots so that more speakers can participate.

## Key dates

* 1 December: CfP submission deadline

* 15 December: Announcement of selected talks

* 3 February: Energy devroom at FOSDEM, you must be available onsite to
