Media Release: EMC Solar Steps up its Clean Energy Profile

Wednesday, 11 May 2011

EMC Solar Ltd (Energy Made Clean) today announced the appointment of a new director and acquisitions of an interest in HAC Australia Pty Ltd and Clear Energy Pty Ltd, all of which will contribute to EMC’s plan to be a significant player within the clean energy sector.

“Alannah, as a former long serving Minister for Planning and Infrastructure, brings a wealth of experience and a reputation for getting difficult jobs done and we are extremely pleased that she has agreed to take on this role,” said Mr Davidson the company’s CEO.

HAC and Clean Energy Acquisitions

“HAC is a growing business that has established a strong reputation for innovation and project delivery in the clean energy and energy efficiency sectors”, said Mr Davidson.

The investment in HAC provides EMC with access to a talented and experienced team of engineers and project managers to support the rapid growth of EMC’s project pipeline, and provides HAC with the resources and commercial skills required to continue their growth in the professional services industry.

Founded by key leaders of the team that managed Perth’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell Bus Trial, HAC was established in 2007 to help industry and Government prepare for a carbon constrained future.

HAC’s principal offices are located in Melbourne, Perth and Kalgoorlie.

Clear Energy holds a Western Australian electricity retail licence. This acquisition will enable a vertical integration with EMC’s clean energy generation assets, improving the efficiency of electricity trade and lowering the cost of clean energy to EMC’s commercial consumers.

About EMC

Energy Made Clean Solar

Energy Made Clean Solar

EMC is an Australian Federal Government Registered Pooled Development Fund established in 2004 and focused on commercialising opportunities in the clean energy sector via three strategic divisions; Generation, Services and Technology.

Until recently EMC owned Australia’s largest Photovoltaic Solar Systems Integrator which was successfully divested to a NASDAQ listed company. EMC retains a share holding in that company.

One of EMC’s subsidiaries recently signed a $1.7M Federal Government funding agreement to build a solar power station in Carnarvon. Construction is expected to be completed in August this year.

SOLARDAY 2011 endorses and commends the efforts of John Reed in establishing SOLARDAY 2011 across the United States of America and promoting its incorporation into the calendar of other countries throughout this amazing world that is our home.



This type of focus is just what we need to make the general public throughout the world more conscious of the need for a 21st century solar economy as fast as possible.

For Wise Earth P/L (our parent company) and its staff and management, every day is SOLARDAY!

Therefore, we take seriously this brilliant and visionary promotional idea.  The next 20 years (up to 2030) will be the most important time for human action on Climate Change, in adapting to it and abating it in the medium and long term.

Now is the time the planning for our sustainable energy future.  There really is no choice eventually.

We are absolutely convinced through our own research via our networks of imminent experts throughout the globe, that we need to go solar as fast as possible.

Instead of burning our cheap precious fossil fuels on ‘business as usual’ type developments and maintaining the ‘old fossil fuel economy ‘as long as possible, we really need to be using this cheap energy to produce as much solar energy utilization as possible and every other year from hereon, while it is still abundant.

It then can gain a critical mass and begin to replicate itself before our cheap fossil fuel is wasted.

Solarday 2011: How to get involved

To help get the message out there about SOLARDAY, the following is a personal invitation from John Reed to be involved and a media release for SOLARDAY 2011’s events.  Also here is a list of the contributors and participants of SOLARDAY 2010’s event.

We recommend that you personally, as a non-profit, commercial enterprises and government authorities get on board with this and look at practical and effective ways of networking with solar-e to achieve exactly what this day has already become, and representing a potent symbol of the type of society and economy we need to develop.

I think that all societies and associations should get involved with this initiative.  We need cooperation and collaboration and teamwork to pull off intelligent change.

This should not be a competition!  It is our kids and grand children’s future we are helping to create.

Let’s applaud John Reed’s initiative and get on with it!
