I am an engineer at one of the industrial partners that recently won a 25M grant to form a "grid forming inverter consortium".
The project is early stage, but one goal of the project is to develop some embedded control libraries for implementing the standard to serves as a reference implementation. In some of the early meetings, I have suggested using Rust rather than C for these libraries, as historically domain experts in inverter controls are not the best at writing safe, portable, and performant embedded C code. I think Rust could be potentially a much better option.
Anyways, I'd like this email to be a bit of a call to arms for all fellow Rustaceans interested in grid forming inverters and renewable energy. Let me know your interest level, experience, and general feelings on the maturity of Rust for embedded. I will keep the community posted on progress as well as potential ways to get involved.
