Hi, I won't be able to join today (due to founding a company at around the same time). Cheers!

@Ly0n hi I'd like to suggest you to check out this Italian companies NWG and NWG Energia. It is the only energy provider company worldwide with the label B-Corp.
@Ly0n i used to work for them in Italy. in 20 years of activity they installed over 50k domestic photovoltaic systems all over Italy and with NWG Energia they deliver energy to the Italian families with 100% green energy mix.
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
Thanks @Vince83UK_twitter for pointing this out. Do they open-source data, models or technology?

Hello! Was interested in using this service, is there a way to hook this up to OpenCollective directly or is that a manual effort to get reimbursed?

@sethmlarson Do you have time for a call in the next days?

@Ly0n I'm available today but after that will be gone until next week. Is a call the preferred way to answer questions?

Hi! I am looking for other devs who would like to join me working on https://github.com/pogopaule/awesome-sustainability-jobs.
With this project I try to lower the barrier for devs to switch to a green tech company by listing those companies that have vacancies for devs. There are thousands (maybe millions?) of dev jobs out there but only a tiny percentage of them are in green tech companies, so there are preeetty hard to find (speaking from own experience)

I'm especially looking for contributors from non-English/non-German speaking countries because this is my blind spot at the moment. I cannot search for positions in e.g. France or Indonesia. But any help is welcome. The backlog is full with companies that are yet to be screened...

Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@pogopaule I will boost your project via all channels I got. You should also consider to create a twitter bot for your list like we do for opensustain.tech. This will help others to see new jobs at your list.
pogopaule
@pogopaule
@Ly0n Thank you! I'll consider your bot idea!

Hi all, here a small video recommendation: https://youtu.be/yiw6_JakZFc
kentcr
@kentcr
I just found out about OpenSustain.tech and was happy to do so, but a problem has already emerged: the landscape is so large and complicated that it's not clear where (or if) I can focus my efforts effectively from just the list. Are there any recommendations on how to solve that problem with existing resources? Alternatively, would others be interested in creating resources to help with that? That is, trying to match skills/perspectives with effective projects/tasks?
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@tjarkdoering The video is amazing but it does not explain the dramatic impact of climate change well enough.
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@kentcr We will work the next months on improving OpenSustain.tech to make it more accessible. This will include a much better search engine and better website design.
@kentcr If you would like to you can join us doing so.
kentcr
@kentcr
@Ly0n I don't see the issue as being search or design alone. It's a lack of information about which projects need help, the skills required, the relationship (e.g. volunteer vs. employee, on-site vs. remote, etc.). It's also complicated by the fact that some organizations have multiple projects with different objectives/needs. This could all be incorporated into better search/design, but it could also be more like a issue tracking system.
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@kentcr I will start to gather all metadata information of the Github projects at the weekend. Check out slide 10 here:
Based on all the information we can gather the goal is to create a database that is constantly been updated. With this we are going to create a new website.
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
I hope that we can fulfill some of the points you raise. It looks like we have similar ideas about this. When we created the first prototype we can tell more about what information the GitHub API can give us about the projects. The "Good First Issue" labels could help us find projects that need support.
kentcr
@kentcr
@Ly0n Yes, very much in accord with my thinking, though to my mind being dependent on GitHub is very limiting. I've been thinking towards forking/upstreaming GitLab server, which could allow things like an interface for non-programmers and global searches for tags/criteria ("Good First Issue"), while still allowing symbiosis with GitHub and others. I started thinking about this in the context of Effective Altruism, where other cause areas (poverty, animal welfare, etc.) are important to a lot of people as well.
kentcr
@kentcr
e.g. Something like https://github.com/samrocketman/gitlab-mirrors for mirroring (which includes wikis since they're just repos themselves) and https://github.com/IQAndreas/github-issues-import or https://github.com/coreos/issue-sync to include issues
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@kentcr The restriction to GitHub is also something I don't like, but unfortunately most of the active projects are on GitHub. We can get the metadata for over 95% of the projects through GitHub's API. This is helpful for our case, but the dependency on this one platform is of course a fundamental problem. However, I think that we can manually add the metadata of the other projects for the time being.
kentcr
@kentcr
@Ly0n That's why I'm saying the better solution is remove the dependency and keep the compatibility. The repos I linked establish this can be done, presumably with the GitHub API though I didn't dig into the details
kentcr
@kentcr
Projects can continue to operate on GitHub, but we'd mirror them and the issues (read-only), allowing lots of nice features (global "Good First Issue" search, etc.) that can't be implemented on GitHub directly
kentcr
@kentcr
This could include tools that makes commits to relevant projects even if the user in question doesn't know how to use git. The awesome-sustainability-jobs list mentioned earlier could be maintained this way, for example. I'd actually think pretty much anything that can be crowdsourced like Amazon Mechanical Turk would work.

@ReimarBauer
@Ly0n have you scanned sourcehut already? https://sourcehut.org/ https://sr.ht/projects
that's the idea behind it https://drewdevault.com/2019/05/24/What-is-a-fork.html
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@ReimarBauer We tried to scan the decentralized git platform with another approach. By datamining released papers we check for the terms open source or git in combination with the keyword of Open Sustainable Technology

@kentcr I tried this also at the last company I was working at. The problem is that many important information like user names etc got lost in this way.
kentcr
@kentcr
@Ly0n That sounds like a problem with the implementation, not the idea.

Is there a specific place to discuss whether or not I can get my startup listed with protontypes/opensustain tech?
Tobias Augspurger
@Ly0n
@/all We are starting into a new project phase with OpenSustain.tech. Since we have managed to cover a large part of the Open and Sustainable Technology ecosystem, we would now like to go into a more detailed analysis. To do this, we are collecting more data about the projects using the Github API. Here is a taste: https://airtable.com/shrlMcR33bf3cRrH9/tbl6OlzXSODSN0ckS/viw7qKUpnhrbwqJaZ?blocks=hide
Anybody who would like to join us or is interested in the data we are creating please contact me.

@fkromer
@Ly0n Recently I tried to figure out how to estimate annual energy production of a potential PV installation. The output of this analysis would help to estimate the repayment duration of the installation. I've found a really impressive API https://docs.solcast.com.au/?_ga=2.241851590.59536452.1636798284-627031133.1636798283#introduction by https://solcast.com . The API usage is not free. However it should allow to calculate the energy production in the past very accurately. In addition it's possible to calculate future energy production via forecast data. Probably you do not know about this API yet. Do you guys know of other API providers offering similar data?
