LocalGrid Technologies, a Toronto-based software company, and Hatch, a multidisciplinary professional services firm, have signed a cooperation agreement to jointly pursue projects and develop technology for microgrid and distributed generation applications.

Hatch delivers technical and strategic services, including consulting, information technology, engineering, process development, and project and construction management to the energy, mining and infrastructure sectors. LocalGrid says its eGridOS product runs on utility-grade control hardware and provides advanced data capture and analytics.

“Utilities are seeking the ability to integrate distributed generation, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging while increasing the service life of existing grid assets and becoming more resilient to power outages resulting from increasingly volatile weather events. A microgrid control and operation strategy offers this promise,” says Pieter de Koning, manager of energy technology development and commercialization at Hatch.
