It’s been a while since All-Energy Australia 2018 and we are still reminiscing about our greatest conference yet. This year brought with it exciting new partnership announcements, engaging conversations with our resellers and customers, and the biggest Solar Analytics stall to date. Complete with two interactive mega-dashboard displays, dozens of excited staff and those ultra-recognisable purple t-shirts, there was never a moment where the Solar Analytics stand wasn’t abuzz.
We want to say a massive thank you to all the resellers, customers and partners who dropped by for a visit and hope you enjoyed the stall just as much as we did putting it together. We loved getting the opportunity to share some of our newest projects with you – including our exciting partnership with Enphase Australia, the launch of our peer-to-peer trading platform Shared Solar and a new relationship with Delta Energy Systems.
Here's a great video that we put together showcasing some of the hightlights of All-Energy 2018:
Solar Insiders Podcast
Our very own Business Development Director Nigel Morris and a full panel of energy experts delivered an interactive podcast that merged the best of ‘Energy Insiders’, ‘Solar Insiders’ and ‘TheDriven’ podcasts all into one. Discussions covered a wide range of energy topics and included answering questions posed by a live audience of conference attendees.
You can find the All-Energy podcast here.
Women in Renewables Luncheon
We pride ourselves on our supportive culture and inclusive values. This year our co-Founder Renate Egan and Relationships Manager Kathleen Ryan joined other talented women at the annual CEC Women in Renewables networking luncheon. This year’s focus was all about encouraging women into leadership roles within the renewable sector – a major goal shared by both the CEC and Solar Analytics alike.
Peer2Peer Energy Trading Presentation
Joined by Greensync and Delta Energy Systems, our CEO Stefan Jarnason gave an insightful presentation on the benefits of Shared Solar – Solar Analytics’ very own peer-to-peer energy trading platform.
The project is being driven by Australians’ need to build “community, control and choice” over their energy management decisions. Stefan also announced our partnership with Energy Locals and Enosi in extending the platform so that customers can reap financial benefits from selling their excess solar in the future.
Solar Monitoring Face Off
The All Energy ‘Monitoring Face-off’ gave our Business Development Director Nigel Morris the opportunity to discuss what sets Solar Analytics apart in the energy monitoring sphere. Nigel and carbonTRACK Chief Technology Officer Shavaj Kallamkote discussed the benefits of gathering detailed data, and the importance of the insights that can be drawn from its analysis.
Nigel began by reflecting on the humble origins of energy monitoring - when energy data was limited by the measurement tools available to collect it. Comparing this primitive start to energy monitoring today, Nigel highlighted how the drastic increase in data collection tools has sparked the beginning of the energy monitoring industry we know today. The application of sophisticated algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence have allowed Solar Analytics to build a platform that extends past data logging - now enabling for features such as fault detection, performance analysis and predictive forecasting.
The presentation concluded with questions from the audience - covering everything from installation procedures to the impact energy monitor is having on the broader electricity market today.
