Australian green technology company, Solar-Gem, has been given a major boost in the US after it took first place honours at an Innovation Shootout competition held at Microsoft’s Silicon Valley Campus.

The Shootout, which is aimed at showcasing Australian technologies to venture capitalists for global commercialisation, saw Solar Gem win out over six Australian competitors — Digisensory, Intelliguard, Mid-Comp International, MultiTrode, Synengco, and Zarloc.

Solar Gem’s technology seeks to provide affordable off-grid energy based on clean solar power systems, particularly to developing nations without electricity and lighting for their rural and regional populations. Under the Shoot-Out participants were allotted five minutes to convince a panel of Microsoft staff, Silicon Valley venture capitalists and industry analysts that their technology had potential for success in the US. The Shootout is part of the G’Day USA week. Austrade’s San Francisco-based senior trade commissioner, Nigel Warren, said the event showcased the Australian innovation and promoted business collaboration between Australia and the US.

Sydney based company, Solar-Gem Pty Ltd, has won the rights to light up a village at the world famous Indian heritage site of Elephanta Caves off the coast of Mumbai with its unique solar powered LED lighting technology.

 

In a significant step towards successfully entering the Indian market, Solar-Gem has signed an MOU with Science and Technology Park (STP) based in Pune, India to conduct the trial with the Solar-Gem solar powered LED lighting solution. STP is an Indian Government research and technology centre renowned for its leading role in introducing new technologies to projects in the Sub-Continent.

 

CEO Khimji Vaghjiani said “this was a great step forward towards providing efficient renewable energy based lighting in both developed and developing markets. The Solar-Gem solution will replace dangerous and expensive kerosene and candle lighting used in villages and assist developing nations in reducing their carbon footprint and reliance on grid connected power.”

 

Khimji said “the MOU with STP was testimony to the fact that the Solar-Gem solution was economically and technologically suitable for the needs of developing countries.”

 

Solar-Gem acknowledges the fantastic support given by Austrade in Sydney, Australia (Amit Misra), and in Mumbai India (Kala Anand) for not only the advice and insights into the market, but also their assistance in providing the right connections to ensure the agreement was a joint Indian – Australian achievement.

 

The Solar-Gem solution provides solar powered LED based lighting with a sophisticated energy management system providing a system lifespan exceeding 10 years. Leading edge industrial design means the system can be installed by an unskilled end user reducing deployment costs. Solar Gem’s commitment to Research and Development will ensure that future products will expand beyond lighting to power other equipments such as fans, computers, and televisions.

 

Khimji said that negotiations were under-way to conduct trials in other nations including Thailand (with assistance from Austrade’s Acharaporn Suddhachitta), Indonesia, Middle East (with assistance from Austrade’s Elizabeth Gordon), and the Philippines.
