Allume Energy is a finalist for the Clean Energy Council’s Innovation Award

SHARE

Today the Clean Energy Council (CEC) announced that Allume Energy is one of only three finalists for the CEC’s Innovation Award!

The Innovation Award is one of the most prestigious cleantech award in Australia, awarded by the peak body that spans all renewable energy sectors. We are incredibly grateful that a panel of industry leaders has selected our SolShare technology as one of the finalists from amongst hundreds of submissions.

Our submission focussed on how the Australian-made SolShare opens up new markets for rooftop solar, how it enables solar access for those that have previously missed out, and how it increases on-site consumption of solar using optimisation.


The Allume Energy SolShare – shortlisted for the CEC Innovation Award

We showed the capability of the SolShare by showcasing the installation of the SolShare on Housing Choices Australia’s community housing apartments in Altona North, Victoria.

We think this case study is a superb example of how rooftop solar can be used as a targeted way can supporting low-income residents in community housing get through the current economic slump, and then for the next 20 years of the system’s life.

The benefits experienced by the 44 households living in the community housing complex in the first six months since the installation of the SolShare include:

  • 39% reduction in electricity consumed from the grid.
  • Electricity bills reduced by $6,929, or over $155 per household (when modelled against the Victorian Default Offer).
  • Avoided emissions of 40 tons of carbon dioxide (equivalent to driving a late-model sedan 150,000km).
  • Increased self-consumption by 21% when compared to individual installations of 1.5kW per apartment.

The other shortlisted finalists for the CEC’s Innovation Award are 5B for their technology that allows rapid deployment of solar farms, and Western Power for the deployment of stand-alone power systems at the fringe of their grid. You can find out more on the Clean Energy Council’s website.

The selection panel will be announcing the winner on 25th August – so stay tuned!
