Discussion related to the Brightcon conference. General discussion: https://gitter.im/brightway-lca/community.
Sorry, in case it wasn't clear the intention here is to have an easy channel for people to ask questions or provide feedback. We had some really nice interactions among the audience members in the last two years when we were on Zoom.
Thanks to @michaelweinold for the idea and setting it up!
Hello also from here! Great to have this chat!
Good morning Vietnam Luxembourg!
Besides the 🎤 for the questions, you can also leave comments here
Hi there, has anyone worked on LCAs for one of these topics or similar? Please hit me up for exchange: 1) Heavy Duty Diesel Replacement Decarbonisation: with methanol reformation to hydrogen and hight temperature PEM Fuel Cells (i.e. for electricity on ships, trucks, off-road vehicles) 2) Electricity Grid Switchgear decarbonisation: SF6-free switchgear especially medium voltage (i.e. in transformer stations and wind mills) 3) EV Charging: Fast-Charging infrastructure for EVs - localised and taking electricity mix int account 4) Decarbonising buildings: utilising AI for plugging into building management systems, smart meters, chillers, pumps, etc and reduce energy consumption with AI prediction and (thermal/electric) load management 5) Decarbonising Semiconductors: Advanced energy efficient low temperature Epitaxy versus metal organic chemical vapor deposition 6) Decarbonising Electronics: Advanced manufacturing of III-V compound / wide bandgap semiconductors (SiC, GaN, InGaN, ) 8) Advanced Efficient Solar: Triple junction solar sells such as Silicon + Perovskite and similar (GaInP–GaInAsP-Si or SrLaAlO4) 9) Advanced Efficient Batteries: Solid State Batteries (with La) 10) Decarbonising/efficiency in computing: Efficient AI co-processors for more energy efficient inference. 11) Decarbonising the Electricity Grid: Low-Voltage control and switching in the electricity grid
The demo/jupyter notebook by @okworx_gitlab is also in the jupyter lab servers we have used all along Brightcon
Dear all, I just wanted to say that I/we are very happy to receive the award for the Activity Browser. I would have very much liked to be at brightcon this year, but it was impossible due to teaching. I would like to emphasise that the AB is a collaborative effort - so congrats and thanks to all of those who have contributed to it over the last years and thanks so much to Chris and the entire brightway community for building these amazing tools as that is the basis the AB stands on!
enjoy brightcon! :-)
Congrats to the teams of Activity Browser and NTNU Industrial Ecology Digital Laboratory for their awards, and for everything they are giving to the community!
Thank you Bernhard for these words
Congrats to To Roman Sacchi for his increadible contribution to Open Sustainability with premise and many other contributions!
Congrats To Benjamin Portner for his contribution to Brightway - in github, during conferences, in his work, in helping others,...!
Sending good energy and snacks to all Brightway hackathon teams! If you aren't here this year, hope to see you in the future - there are a few surprises for hackathon participants :)
Hackathon participants: We have a 100% discount code for a 1 year personal subscription to all JetBrains tools to raffle.
Here's the way to win it: a) tweet @brightcon_media a picture of your minifigure / bricks creation during the hackathon to participate in the raflle. b) we'll randomly pick your name from a physical bowl, located in the room, with your names :)
Hi guys, does anyone know how to open the graphical modeling interface (similar to gabi) in openlca? We saw it in the presentation of Michael Srocka.
Hi @Haitham-ghaida , for Windows you just download the zip folder from https://www.openlca.org/download/, open the zip, and then run the .EXE file, no need to install anything else. There are other tabs for the other OS with instructions as well. It's semi intuitive to use, and in differences to brightway you first have to define all "system units" and "units" before being able to define anything else; then all flows incluiding the product themselves of process need to be defined.

A take-home message for me was to apply the FAIR principles to LCI data. Any suggestions for where to host/submit datasets? @agneta20
Zenodo provide good hosting, long-term promises, and DOIs. That is where e.g. exiobase is.
@SanderNielen First check the project you work with if they have a data management plan. Ensure that there is an agreement on the requirements with respect to open access and licenses in general. And then general data repositories such as zenodo, figshare, mendeley provide doi's long term hosting and licensing etc.
