FiReStarter Announcement

Future in Review is honored to have Planet Ark Power as a participant in the FiRe 2019 FiReStarter Program. This program comprises a select group of companies on the cusp of making great strides in improving our world with their new technology. Past FiReStarters have included Tesla Motors, Apeel Sciences, and OtoNexus Medical Technologies.

Planet Ark Power ( transforms rooftop solar into an investment-grade asset, with innovations that increase bi-directional energy flows across the power grid. Clean energy is generated and consumed locally, increasing efficiencies and reducing costs.

Planet Ark Power is a leading Australian renewable-energy company focused on providing comprehensive clean-energy solutions that help businesses and organisations slash electricity costs and build a sustainable-energy future. Its expertly engineered systems reduce businesses’ grid-supplied energy and demand charges, replacing them with clean solar power, battery storage, microgrid technology, and improved efficiency. Its micro-grid systems enable businesses to access the benefits of exporting energy to the grid, and revenue streams from demand response; and allow network operators to smoothen specific sections of the grid.

At its heart, Planet Ark Power is an innovative engineering company with a remarkable depth of knowledge and experience in energy and solar power. Its team of engineers has decades of experience in the energy industry. They take a holistic approach to energy management, focusing on the commercial and industrial sectors, educational and health organisations, and government facilities.
