Climate change is impacting the energy and water distribution infrastructure, urging companies to adopt innovative technologies to cope with weather pattern flux. Since 1962, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHI) has been developing facilities that ensure effective transportation and distribution of energy and water to people around the world. DHI has taken steps to develop supporting technologies to enable clean and sustainable energy.

DHI acquired 1Energy Systems—a premium utility-scale control system software and services provider in the US—to incept Doosan GridTech in 2016. This acquisition marked the entry of the hardware-heavy DHI armed with software and service capabilities into the rapidly developing energy storage systems (ESS) and microgrid markets. Doosan GridTech provides solutions and services pertaining to software, system integrations, and the complete delivery of grid-integrated ESS.

Doosan GridTech offers a software platform that contains DG-IC™ (Doosan GridTech Intelligent Controller) and DG-DERO® (Doosan GridTech Distributed Energy Resource Optimizer). The company provides a range of services for the design and deployment of ESS and microgrids and management of distributed energy resources (DER). DG-IC™ provides various operation modes that address problems related to the integration of renewable energy sources with the electrical grid. These operational capabilities allow clients to minimize fluctuations and disruptions from renewable sources. This helps customers mitigate capital expenditure and reduce power outages.

DG-DERO® is a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) that securely aggregates and optimizes the economic value of ESS and other distributed resources.

This aids clients in securing grid aggregations and optimizing energy storage and distribution assets. The software is server-based and integrated into the client’s data center. It utilizes various standard communications to exchange information from multiple sources to devise fleet dispatch recommendations.

Doosan GridTech aims to continue serving its customers by providing software and engineering services for the automatic management and optimization of distributed energy resources to enable a world driven by smart energy

To ensure interoperability with other parts of the power system, Doosan GridTech built its software on the Modular Energy Storage Architecture (MESA). The company adopted industry open standards to innovate standardized products and offer customers low priced products that substantiate iterative engineering projects. Doosan GridTech aims to continue serving its customers by providing software and engineering services for the automatic management and optimization of distributed energy resources to enable a world driven by smart energy.

Doosan GridTech provides services backed by extensive experience in all aspects of power system integration projects. These services help utilities through all the steps of maximizing the usage of distributed energy resources. The company provides engineering assistance to back its modeling and designing services. It adopts an analytical approach to configure a microgrid, energy storage system, or other distributed energy resource assets. The company also provides system integration services to simplify customers’ needs for procuring distributed energy resources. A client can opt for Doosan GridTech’s turnkey services to gain complete assistance for all project tasks while being closely involved in key decisions. On the other hand, a utility firm can have full control of project tasks through Doosan GridTech’s ‘Owner’s Engineering structure’ wherein expert provide the necessary support to mitigate project risk.

With public policies worldwide pushing toward electrical energy and the adoption of renewable sources of energy to mitigate harsh effects of climate change, Doosan GridTech is focused on bringing societal improvements through technology-based solutions that will enable the digital, distributed electric grid.
