Anna Skarbek, Clean Energy Finance Corporation board member, spoke at the Australian Climate Leadership conference stating "A lack of communication between solar and energy efficiency is holding back the true potential of emissions reduction." She encouraged the industry to  "think hard about how you can...bundle energy efficiency upgrades into marketable opportunities and link into solar" 

Our data analytics team, led by Ross McIntyre, has responded with a Wattblock Solar Assessment for strata buildings, pictured right.
Traction Update
Wattblock generated its 400th energy efficiency report for a strata building this week. We are currently doing 'deep dive' data analysis on 27 strata buildings across Sydney, Manly and Parramatta, capturing the insights for our future product development.

In addition to LED lighting, we are currently pursuing 5 solar opportunities, one ventilation opportunity and two power factor correction opportunities.

Team Update
This week we welcome Ivan Li to the team taking the team size to 28 people as we come to the close of our first major internship program. We also thank our accounting and HR advisors who have been assisting us on a part time basis.

Partner Update
Wattblock has been collaborating with electricians, lighting, solar, ventilation and hot water experts. This week we engaged with a Power Factor Correction vendor. When the the quality of power provided from the grid declines, it can result it additional charges to strata buildings. The falling cost of industrial power correction devices has now brought this technology into reach of strata buildings, saving them money and increasing the lifespan of their electricity equipment and appliances.

Wattblock will be presenting at the upcoming Owners Corporation Network annual general meeting, alongside Jay Leonard from Enlighten Australia. The topic is "Reducing Levies through Energy Savings." You can register here for a 10am start on Saturday 21st November at 'The Station' in Jacksons Landing, Pyrmont.
