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.


Solar-e.com 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!

Australia Climate Change Committee welcomed

WA Sustainable Energy Association Inc. (WA SEA)  27 September 2010

Australian Climate Change Committee welcomed by Australia’s largest energy chamber.

The WA Sustainable Energy Association Inc. (WA SEA) welcomes the announcement today by Prime Minister Julia Gillard of the membership and terms of reference for the new multi-party Climate Change Committee to help build consensus on how Australia will tackle Climate Change.

The Prime Minister said “the Committee will start from the position that a carbon price is an economic reform that is required to reduce carbon pollution, to encourage investment in low emissions technologies and complement other measures including renewable energy and energy efficiency.”

WA SEA continues to support a national emissions trading scheme based on scientifically established reduction targets as the best way to tackle the challenge of bringing down Australia’s emissions.

‘A combination of a trading system, paired with direct incentives for industry to reduce emissions through both energy efficiency and procurement of lower emissions energy, will actually diversify the economy and create a more robust environment for business. Energy efficiency is a critical component as it will reduce inflationary pressures that would otherwise occur through spiralling fossil fuel prices,’ says Prof Ray Wills, Chief Executive of WA SEA.

Investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy will deliver projects returning real profits in real operations with real jobs that deliver real, emissions-free energy, and help build a more efficient, more sustainable economy.’

We must fundamentally change the way we think about energy and how we do business. The economic naysayers who say climate change is simply inconvenient are still planning an economy based on paradigms and activities of the last century that simply do not add up, nor do they provide the solutions needed for this century.’

Climate change is real, the impacts are already proving dire and will only get worse, humans are causing it, and we need to stop,’ says Prof Wills.

As Australia’s largest energy chamber, WA SEA looks forward to working directly with the Climate Change Committee, and as a member of its business roundtable to establish a policy response to climate change that is builds a sustainable economy for Australia into the 21st Century.

WA SEA is particularly pleased with Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s inclusion and commitment to the Climate Change Committee underscoring that action on climate change is a core duty of the new Federal Government.
