Update on CDSC formation and activities

John Mertic

CDSC community and interested parties,

I want to provide an update on the activities of the CDSC. In the past week, we've had kickoff meetings for both working groups ( Customer Data and Power Systems Data ), along with the Strategy Committee. Each group is well underway and starting to collaborate on their initial deliverables.

If you haven't already done so, please subscribe to the various mailing lists to stay up to date on the activities and have the invites for meetings...

In addition, join the LFE Slack ( https://slack.lfenergy.org ) and join the relevant #cdsc channels to participate in conversation there.

A few additional housekeeping notes: 

- Participation in the Strategy Committee is open to all in the community, but voting is restricted to a vote for each LF Energy Strategic or General member in good standing. As mentioned during the kickoff call, this group will be at the center of insuring alignment across stakeholders both inside the CDSC as well as with other regulatory and standards bodies and likely one you would want to participate in if it is in your organization's interests.
- The kickoff CDSC TSC meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at 7:00 am US Pacific Time has been rescheduled to start at 9:00 am US Pacific Time due to a conflict with the LF Energy Member meeting. Future meetings will occur at the previous time, pending agreement from the TSC meeting participants.  

Further communication on CDSC activities will occur on the mailing lists referred to above; if you have questions or concerns please let me know.

Thank you,

John Mertic
