Impact

The Wattwatchers digital energy platform has a positive impact on the economy, society and the environment by accelerating the transition to a smarter, renewables-led, affordable energy future.

Our technologies and products, our projects and partnerships, the data analytics and insights we enable, and our ideas and thought-leadership all contribute to this goal.

As a scale-up technology company, we maximise our positive impact by building a sustainably-profitable, growth-oriented business that ‘does good’ every time we sell a solution.

In particular, we prioritise innovation opportunities that shift electricity grids towards next-generation models that are clean, fair, digital and distributed. We harness data to empower electricity consumers – households, enterprises and communities – while also supporting the energy companies, markets and systems that serve them.

We concentrate on practical, verifiable outcomes – across our platform, products, projects and partnerships – in key areas including:

Optimising rooftop solar generation – the No. 1 reason our devices are installed, for individual customer benefit, energy services and electricity system stability

Protecting consumer data rights – we’ve purpose-created a set of transparent, customer-friendly terms and conditions for our mydata.energy app

Making energy data more available, shareable and useful – we manage over 4 billion data points a day for our customers

Maximising energy productivity – over 50,000 devices in the field, boosting efficiency, sustainability and affordability

Advancing energy education and sustainability – we’re installed at 500+ schools supporting a mix of energy management and teaching curriculum use cases

Leading research initiatives and technology developments – we’ve been awarded over $10M in government investments, grants and R&D incentives to advance our sector

Creating rewarding jobs in the ‘smart energy’ sector – our team will grow by a third to approx. 15 in 2021, and we indirectly support many roles and related work

Sustainable Development Goals

Wattwatchers supports the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 Decade of Action, and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognising the interconnectedness of prosperous business, a thriving society and a healthy environment. Our activities align strongly with six of the 17 individual goals:

As a team, we share a personal commitment to climate action, embracing and working towards net zero emissions across the economy well before 2050.

As a distributed business, with people in a number of places, we respect and honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on this land and commit to building a brighter future together. We also recognise the indigenous traditional owners of other regions around the world.
