Kitu Systems’ Grid Action Platform™ (GAP) is a secure, multi-purpose, end-to-end software platform that securely embeds intelligence and control capabilities into DERs, aggregates their communication behind the customer’s firewall or in the cloud, and interconnects them with utility, building, and customer management systems.
Our Grid Action Platform™ provides seamless connectivity and delivers value added services to end-users, utilities and aggregators, DER providers and device manufacturers, and third-party energy service providers.
Kitu Systems’ Grid Action Platform™ enables the converged operation
of DER assets of multiple different types on a single platform.
The ability for utilities to control distributed energy resources (DERs) located behind-the-meter, while coordinating device actions, is crucial to being able to provide grid-support services when needed.
Kitu’s Grid Action Platform™ (GAP) resides behind a customer’s firewall (Citadel™) or in the platform’s cloud service (Convoy™). It is open-standards-based, and integrates, aggregates, and controls any DER, such as solar PV, battery energy storage, EVs, and more, which implements the IEEE 2030.5 standard. The GAP platform provides the ability to model the grid, collect and aggregate telemetry, and securely issue controls to manage load and ensure grid stability.
