The Australian solar energy software firm Solar Analytics have been hand-picked as one of the 12 companies from 450 startup companies around the world to participate in developing peer-to-peer solar energy trading in the Asia-Pacific region as reported by Ecogeneration.
The Solar Analytics project involves:
- Deploying a peer-to-peer shared electricity platform that will connect solar and non-solar owners
- Providing affordable solar electricity to the community
- The platform will enable solar homeowners and businesses to choose different options on how to sell their electricity surplus
- Non-solar households will be able to choose to whom and what price they want to get the surplus power
The Elemental Excelerator program provides Solar Analytics with a remarkable opportunity to take advantage of the high energy awareness in Australia and Hawaii, to develop and launch a platform that will increase solar uptake and improve electricity options for local communities
