SwitchDin develops technology that makes distributed energy resources (DERs) visible and controllable. SwitchDin enables virtual powerplants, microgrids and helps to integrate DERs into the grid. The SwitchDin Droplet controller provides localised ‘small picture’ energy management and control of DERs. Droplets are DER controllers which integrate with most inverters, meters, and load controllers. Droplets may be deployed individually as autonomous site energy management solutions for homes and businesses, or at scale to enable microgrids and virtual power plants using SwitchDin’s StormCloud platform. The StormCloud PAAS provides user portals and integrations with utility business and markets systems.


Droplets provide localised ‘small picture’ energy management & control


On their own, Droplets are powerful generalised distributed energy resource (DER) controllers. They may be used as energy management systems (EMSs) for homes & businesses, battery energy storage system controllers, microgrid controllers, managed DER controllers, AS4755 DRED controllers and DER system aggregators/monitors.

Each Droplet-equipped site or device can operate autonomously or in coordination with other Droplets via Stormcloud, our cloud-based management platform.


Droplets connect directly with the devices they manage across a range of protocols and standards, acting as a ‘babel fish’ for different types and brands of products, including solar and batteries. Droplets also act as AS 4755-compliant virtual DRED controllers.

Stormcloud provides ‘big picture’ distributed energy management

Each Droplet is a gateway into Stormcloud, SwitchDin’s cloud platform. Energy companies and aggregators can use Stormcloud to tap into and control portfolios of Droplet-enabled resources, which may include Droplet™-equipped sites or individual devices.

Scalable & secure

Stormcloud uses a standard IEC61850-based interface to provide scalable and secure data collection, analytics and orchestration of rooftop solar, battery storage and controllable loads with end-user and fleet manager web portals.

Vendor agnostic

Stormcloud provides a single, hardware-agnostic platform for fleet-wide operation for demand response management, energy trading or ancillary services.
