Energy Philosophy

At Energy Matters, we believe in a clean energy future and are committed to seeing Australia become a ‘Solar Nation‘. For this to take place, renewable energy equipment must be affordable, of the highest quality, and easily accessible to homeowners, schools, community groups and businesses. We not only partner with those who provide the products to create a renewable future, but provide the expert services to build it and the education to support it. We work with the best in the industry who adopt a best practice policy for design and installation. This is our energy philosophy.

We have a genuine passion for what we do, and as one of the industry leaders, it shows. Everyone at Energy Matters commits to creating access to clean, green, and affordable energy. With a huge network of renewable energy experts, Energy Matters’ team is the key to our success in supplying the industry’s finest products and services.

Partnering with Energy Matters creates a clean energy solution that is friendly to the environment and business. Installing solar power on a commercial or community property builds a positive image among stakeholders. It also demonstrates a solid commitment to practice a more sustainable way of life.

Solar philosophy and vision

Australia’s environment is unique and fragile. Energy Matters strives to preserve it for future generations whilst also recognising unique and varied situations and looks to support one and all.

Our vision is to be the trusted advocate for sustainable, affordable and greener energy solutions globally.

We strive to:

  • become the leading knowledge centre in our field by leveraging global research partnerships on renewable power and energy efficiency
  • broaden the scope of available renewable energy technology in line with the latest improvements in concept and design
  • provide affordable energy solutions to enable everyone to benefit, then in turn make ‘greener choices’ in other areas of their lives

Active in the school community

Energy Matters has been very engaged in bringing knowledge about renewable energy to schools and colleges throughout Australia for more than a decade. For example, just in Tasmania alone, Energy Matters was engaged in:

  • exhibiting solar equipment for Flinders Island School
  • conducting a demonstration for students at Exeter Primary School of how solar modules work
  • delivering an in-class demonstration and lecture on solar modules and wind power for grade 7 students at Reece High School
  • our staff delivered a presentation on solar modules for St. Mary’s school
  • delivering a 12-week lecture series as part of a TAFE course covering solar modules, wind generators, batteries, design of equipment and inverters
  • organising a tour of one of Tasmania’s hydropower stations for 70 students from the University of Tasmania. Apollo Energy took the students to a remote area hydropower station for a lecture on solar, wind and hydro systems
  • presenting a series of lectures on the design of renewable energy systems at the Maritime College of Australia. Students designed a power system for a remote village in India as part of their course
  • participating in a show about electric and solar-powered boats at the Maritime College of Australia. This was part of a challenge in which university students designed a solar-powered electric boat to do a full length of the Tamar River and return (100km trip).

Providing industry training

We’re also very active in a variety of industries, helping to educate key decision-makers and tradespeople on green energy topics. For example, we delivered educational talks on renewable energy for the management team and technicians of electrical retailer Aurora Energy.

We also delivered a presentation on the installation of solar power systems onto residential buildings for the Architectural Institute of Tasmania. This was attended by council building inspectors and architects.

Planting trees

We realise that solar power alone will not save the planet from climate change. Energy Matters embarked on a tree planting initiative to assist communities in other countries address issues of deforestation while helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Services that matter and impact Australians

We pride ourselves on delivering services that not only serve a meaningful purpose but provide Australians a realistic way of saving money and reducing their carbon footprint. Our services include:

  • Free solar and renewable energy tech quotes: We connect Australians with trusted and local installers. These installers provide our customers with FREE quotes for solar, batteries, heat pumps, solar hot water, and much more.
  • Free utility comparison service: One quick and easy way for Australians to save money is to regularly change their utility plans or providers. We work with Australia’s leading providers to compare gas, electricity, and broadband plans.
  • Energy Matters Marketplace: Our Marketplace provides our customers with a curated selection of products that are either renewable energy tech or sustainable (or both!).
