Wattwatchers selected for prestigious showcasing event in San Francisco

We’re very proud to be exhibiting at the Start-ups and Solutions Showcase being featured at the international 7th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM7), hosted by the US Government in San Francisco June 1-2.

Wattwatchers will be there sharing a booth with our partners Solar Analytics, fellow Australians who have developed the world’s most intelligent solar performance monitoring solution. (It helps that Australia has the highest penetration of residential solar PV in the world – more power to our rooftops!)

Below is our joint media release announcing our combined participation in the CEM7 Showcase.

Wattwatchers + Solar Analytics

Sydney-based clean energy ‘intelligent solution’ partners Wattwatchers and Solar Analytics have been selected from an international field of applicants for a prestigious showcasing event in the US.

The CEM7 Start-ups and Solutions Showcase is a highlight of the 7th annual Clean Energy Ministerial meeting, which this year is being hosted by the US Government in San Francisco on June 1st and 2nd.

Australia is a member of the CEM, which is made up of 23 nations plus the European Union that together represent about 90 percent of global energy consumption. Members are represented by their national energy ministers.

Wattwatchers is a digital energy technology developer with a Real Time Data, sensor-to-switch energy management system providing an integrated hardware, software and data streaming solution.

Solar Analytics is a leading intelligent solar performance monitoring solution which has been developed especially for residential rooftop PV systems, of which Australia has the highest national penetration in the world with over 1.5 million home installations. It uses the Wattwatchers system for its energy flow data acquisition.

About CEM7 and the Showcase

CEM7 is being promoted as the first major international gathering in the clean energy solutions arena since the historic agreement at the UN climate change talks in Paris last December (COP21). The website for the event is www.cem7.org

About 100 exhibitors have been handpicked for the Showcase from 185 applications that came from 25 countries.

The CEM7 organisers said: ‘The Showcase will be a celebration of technology innovation and entrepreneurship – a bold display of the breakthrough technologies and startups that will transform the worldwide economy in the years and decades to come.

‘The San Francisco Bay Area is known as a hotbed of innovation and venture capital financing: a place where startups and new technologies find interest and support for their products and new business models. The Showcase will be located in the heart of San Francisco in Union Square, directly across the street from the historic Westin St. Francis Hotel, and will be open to government delegations, entrepreneurs, investors, media, and the general public.’

Hosts for the Showcase include the non-profit clean energy investment group, the Californian Clean Energy Fund. CalCEF – www.calcef.org – is led by ex patriate Australian Danny Kennedy, a former Greenpeace campaigner who co-founded major US solar company Sungevity and wrote the book Rooftop Revolution.

Wattwatchers and Solar Analytics will co-present at a shared booth for the CEM7 Showcase.
