Stormcloud enables smart, flexible VPPs for energy retailers, businesses, government and aggregators. Orchestrate solar, batteries, loads - and more. Stormcloud is SwitchDin's secure, flexible, vendor-neutral VPP platform. Stormcloud is a smart, digital orchestration platform that securely connects every device, delivering insights to allow optimisation, and orchestration of the entire system. And like all great technologies, it serves many functions.
SwitchDin Droplets act as secure, simple and reliable gateways for 'device to control room' management of distributed energy resources (DERs) like solar, batteries and loads - whether those devices belong to you or are made available to you through agreements with your customers and partners. Our Cloud Droplets also allow connectivity and control through third party APIs.
SwitchDin's technology integrates with most popular DER asset brands and types, creating a uniform platform for smart control of VPP-participating systems. It also enables virtual control of key loads such as air conditioners, water heaters and electric vehicles.
This is how we are making tomorrow’s energy system a reality today.
Future-proof energy monitoring & management
As Australia’s energy system becomes more distributed & decentralised, electricity networks, retailers and system operators are looking for ways to harness the potential of distributed energy resources (e.g. solar, batteries, air conditioners, water heaters and more) to bolster system reliability & efficiency.
VPP-ready sites are equipped with real-time monitoring & control functionality, so that VPP operators can make real-time decisions about when, where and how to deploy resources in their fleet.
VPP participation will become a key way for homes & businesses to get more out of their energy assets, being financially rewarded for taking part in VPP programs.
SwitchDin’s VPP platform is vendor and retailer-neutral, allowing a high degree of flexibility for end-users, installers and energy companies alike. Out technology helps installers meet all the requirements for being VPP-ready under South Australia’s Home Battery Scheme.
SwitchDin’s energy monitoring & management system gives end users detailed insights into their energy consumption & generation while also enabling VPP participation.
We generally provide our technology to end users through our partner channels, but we’re happy to help point you in the right direction. Get in touch below.
