The Executive Director of LF Energy, Dr. Shuli Goodman, has passed away following a long battle with cancer.
Goodman founded LF Energy to drive the sustainability of power networks through open source hardware and software. As sponsor, the Linux Foundation says it remains fully committed to the success of LF Energy as a community.
With the backing of Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin, General Manager of Projects Mike Dolan and the LF Energy team, the Foundation will continue to support the community’s efforts to ensure a healthy and prosperous future.
When Goodman was unwell several months ago, she drafted a statement to prepare the community for what has now come to pass. This was never issued as she experienced a remarkable rebound and we were confident that she was on the road to recovery.

“If you are wondering what you can do to help me now, the answer is simple – redouble your efforts to grow our community by recruiting more developers and member companies, contributing new projects, improving existing ones, and spreading the word that technology is a major part of the solution to global climate change. I look forward to the day when we can all be together to celebrate our victories, and I appreciate your continued support in making those victories come to fruition,” she said.
She will be remembered and sorely missed by the community, especially by her wife Karen, her son Dakota, her soul-sister Lucy, and the many young people whom she helped nurture and grow.
