The Linux Foundation recently announced the LF Climate Finance
Foundation (LFCF) and the LF OS-Climate project. Some
useful background in this succinct report:
As I read it, the OS-Climate project aims to build a digital twin of the entire planet, including finance flows and technical transformations. Three components, as given on the project website (URL above), are:
You'll see some of corporate America has signed on too, including IBM (via RedHat), Microsoft, and Amazon.
There is also an interface to
subscribe to their mailing list. One has to supply background so
I suppose some vetting will take place.

Hi Tom, Daniel, all
I participate in the LF Energy (LF is the Linux Foundation) data
architecture working group. LFE is currently talking to Shell
about supporting a collective data project with other oil majors
and oil field servicing companies. The initial use case is
subsurface information (not being a geologist but possibly also
useful for locating CCS sites and nuclear waste repositories?).
The project is named the Open Subsurface Data Universe or OSDU:
The OSDU consortium also plans to extend to above‑surface energy‑related information, including data on renewables potentials.
Thus far, Shell have only indicated contract‑based data brokering. But I have a question into Shell at the moment on public licensing and legal location (essentially, will the European database directive apply). I'll post back here when I know more.
I guess if Schlumberger and Shell are involved, we can clearly assume that "data is now the new oil". :)
with best wishes, Robbie
