About Us

Grid Pathway Founder and CEO Richard Skrinde began his career pioneering UNIX-based, real-time, distributed process control systems in the 1980s. He evolved into a Silicon Valley UNIX open systems evangelist and technical specialist.

Since 2000 Skrinde has focused on evolving ClosedOT into OpenOT via real-time, closed-loop process control. This has included the prosecution of several patents, serving as an EPRI Entrepreneurial Architect (increasing processing and power density in support of generation performance), resulting in an EPRI Polaris award.

The goal is to incrementally empower the ClosedOT user community with an OpenOT alternative with the ability to improve societal sustainability by bridging legacy SCADA with modern IT /OT systems.
