  • flexmeasures

    The intelligent & developer-friendly EMS to support real-time energy flexibility apps, rapidly and scalable.

    Project mention: Show HN: FlexMeasures ― optimize flexible energy demand, in Python | | 2022-06-13


    this is for everybody who is interested in clean tech, especially real-time automation within new energy systems.

    We've been working on FlexMeasures for a while ― an energy management system (EMS) with a focus on using demand flexibility to its maximum potential.

    We're running it in several pilots ourselves, but our aim is to speed up the energy transition across the world. Let's not re-invent the wheel (i.e. a software stack around time series and optimization) too many times. Wherever you are in the world, and whatever setting you might be looking at (energy-modern housing in the U.S., smart e-mobility in Africa, self-balancing microgrids in Indonesia, etc.), maybe some of you will like our approach.

    We've decided that making it easy and clear for developers to build such energy solutions can bring the largest gains. The first step towards that goal was a permissive license (Apache 2.0). The latest step we took was a Docker image (we got a Docker-based tutorial here:

    You can see the code at

    Since recently, FlexMeasures is a project within the Linux Energy Foundation (, which helps to establish a proper governance and quality standard.

    Actually, upcoming Thursday is our next Technical Steering Committee meeting, and interested people are warmly invited:

  • kitchenowl-backend

    Backend for the KitchenOwl app.

    Project mention: Can someone help me understand some weird Docker networking? | | 2023-05-27

    Most recent example is "KitchenOwl"; using the compose file from the Github page, I normally would just add my custom network and change the port to 8090 or something else that isn't already in use. For some reason, nothing I did with this compose file would work to allow me to proxy using the container name - I was able to access at :, but that's obviously not ideal.
