Australian tech duo help solar mission to 'turn world leaders into green leaders'
Australian-based energy technology start-ups Wattwatchers and Solar Analytics are helping an international not-for-profit in its mission to install super-smart solar systems on the rooftops of official government residences.
Solar Head of State, based in the US sunshine state of California, aims to accelerate the global uptake of clean distributed energy by 'turning world leaders into green leaders'.
The latest project by Solar Head of State is taking our Australian technologies all the way to the exotic tropical island of St Lucia, in the Caribbean, as part of a 5.5kW solar installation at the tiny nation's Government House - see the photo gallery with this post.
Solar Analytics has developed the world’s most intelligent residential solar performance monitoring software, an over-the-internet solution using real-time energy data from fast-communicating, ultra-compact metering devices created by Wattwatchers.
The two Sydney-headquartered companies first met the Solar Head of State team at an international clean energy showcase event in San Francisco in June, where they all were included among 100 handpicked exhibitors from 17 countries.
Solar Head of State is planning several more installations in the Caribbean before moving on to the Pacific and Asian regions in 2017 and beyond.
An opinion piece telling the story of Solar Head of State's latest project, and its significance in regard to the global implementation of the historic Paris climate agreement, has been published by Al-Jazeera.
