Sustainability

Our vision of a world where everyone can access clean energy spans so much further than bringing energy equality to the world. Climate change is one of humanities biggest challenges. The SolShare is a powerful tool in reducing global carbon emissions, enabling solar to be installed across the world’s cities. Our dedication to fighting this cause flows through everything that we do, from cycling to work to buying the energy we don’t get from our solar system from renewable sources.

The climate crisis can be won if we all work together and solve problems that matter.

Positive impact on the planet

The SolShare is a world-first technology for enabling rooftop solar on multi-tenant buildings. Every building that installs a SolShare could not have had rooftop solar otherwise. This means that the SolShare has additional impact beyond the existing trajectory of the rooftop solar industry.

This is important because rooftop solar is a major part of the energy transition from a grid dependent on centralised, fossil-fuel energy sources to decentralised renewable sources. Multi-tenant buildings make up a large fraction of the housing, commercial and retail spaces in our cities. Ensuring they can support a clean energy transition is crucial for combatting climate change.

How the SolShare is making a difference:

4.33 GWh
of electricity produced each year

1,570 apartments
connected to solar

3,466 tonnes
of CO2 avoided each year

Clean Energy Council
Innovation Award Winner

Allume Energy won the Clean Energy Council Innovation Award for 2020. This is the most prestigious award from the peak body for the renewables industry in Australia, and reflects the game-changing potential of our technology to unlock new markets for rooftop solar.

What is a carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) that are generated by our actions. To have the best chance of avoiding a 2˚ rise in global temperatures, the average global carbon footprint per person per year needs to drop under 2 tons by 2050. Lowering individual carbon footprints takes time, but by making small changes to our actions, we can start making a big difference.
