The Open Energy Family Community#
The Open Energy Family is developed by researchers from various institutions in different research projects. This open development approach ensures that the framework continues to evolve beyond the duration of individual projects. As a result, the Open Energy Family has fostered a vibrant community of researchers and users, including interested individuals and employees from companies.
While there is often significant overlap between the groups of researchers and users, it is still relevant to distinguish between those who develop the framework and those who use it. This is especially true when it comes to understanding how users collaborate in the development process. To facilitate this, the community is subdivided based on their roles and responsibilities, allowing for greater clarity and coordination.
Overall, this collaborative approach to development and community-building has been a critical factor in the success of the Open Energy Family. By encouraging participation from a diverse range of stakeholders, the framework has been able to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of the energy research community.
