The new home for clean energy innovation in Australia
EnergyLab supports innovation in the energy sector
We run a series of programs designed to help people launch and grow new energy businesses, operate a coworking space, and run regular events to bring the community together. Whether you are a startup, large company or non-profit, we look forward to working with you to create the clean energy future.
How we support clean energy innovation
Connections
Innovation is a team effort, and transitioning our energy systems will require collaboration between a wide range of actors. We create constant opportunities for people to connect and collaborate by running regular events and hosting clean energy startups in our coworking space.
Insight
The problems facing the energy sector are complex and the details unknown to the general public. Through hosting regular events and workshops we help entrepreneurs, industry and community groups gain a more nuanced understand of the problems to better enable them to come up with the solutions.
Support
Clean energy innovators need tailored support; simply applying the lessons learnt by the software industry won't work. EnergyLab is working to develop and disseminate an understanding of how to most successfully develop and scale up clean energy innovations.

"People underestimate how hard energy innovation is. The IT revolution was easy in comparison. The pace of IT innovation was extremely fast. It's a different thing to generate paradigm shifts in energy."
