Energy techs Wattwatchers and Simble build on strong partnership to boost collective growth

Wattwatchers and Simble are building on five-plus years of strong collaboration in Australia’s increasingly competitive energy tech marketplace.
Today, the two homegrown Australian energy technology companies have upped the ante with a new targeted partnership being announced at the start of All-Energy Australia, the annual progressive energy sector mega-event run by international group, Reed Exhibitions.
Wattwatchers will be offering its award-winning energy meters together with Simble’s real-time energy management solution to homes and businesses Australia-wide, using data and remote control to help consumers save money, reduce consumption and cut carbon pollution.
This means that Wattwatchers, which traditionally has focused on devices and data streams for managing and controlling electricity in real-time through the cloud, will now bundle sophisticated end-user interfaces as a seamless extension of its offerings.
Simble, meanwhile, will strategically double-down on its marketing efforts in the high-potential UK marketplace, providing consumer-facing software solutions for utility applications, and also for independent energy IoT devices.
Fadi Geha, Simble Founder and CEO, said the new Reseller Agreement would allow each of the partners to maximise their respective strengths, while avoiding duplication of sales and marketing efforts.
‘For Simble Solutions, it immediately gives us exposure to Wattwatchers’ accelerating growth in the Australian marketplace,’ said Geha.
Gavin Dietz, CEO and Managing Director of Wattwatchers, said that the preferred partner model underpinning the Reseller Agreement with Simble recognised the rising level of competition in the energy tech space.
‘The logic for Simble and Wattwatchers to work together more closely just became ever more compelling,’ Dietz said.
