Planet Ark Power’s solar and AI innovation platform eleXsys® was highly commended at UK’s premium clean technology showcase, Rushlight Awards, held in London on 30th January, 2020. One of the few international entrants, Brisbane-based Planet Ark Power was highly commended in two categories – the Rushlight Solar Award and the Rushlight Natural Energy Award.
The notable jury of experts expressed faith in the potential for eleXsys® to speed up the decarbonisation of global electricity grids. The experts were from UK Climate Investments, WWF, Innovate UK, STFC, The Knowledge Transfer Network, among other influential organisations.
Over the course of the one-day event, Planet Ark Power’s European representative, Andrew Jennings, exhibited at the buzzing Rushlight Show and addressed the Rushlight Cleantech Conference about how eleXsys® unleashes the full solar potential of every roof, encouraging the creation of larger-scale urban rooftop solar farms.
Planet Ark Power also pitched to several noteworthy investors present who were impressed with how eleXsys® can turn energy cost centres into potential revenue streams for commercial, industrial and institutional building owners.
On the back of their global recognition as winners of the Startup Energy Transition Awards 2019 hosted by the World Energy Council and German Energy Agency (dena) last April, Planet Ark Power launched its Series A share offering to fund its international expansion in late 2019.
