Infrastructure for tomorrow’s electricity ecosystem

The future of energy is decentralised. SwitchDin connects the big picture with the small picture through smart control of distributed energy resources - solar, batteries & more.


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 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.
