carbonTRACK is an Australian energy management company with established relationships in Australia, US, NZ, Africa and further expansion plans. A key market of focus for us is Africa, particularly South Africa and the sub-Saharan region – as such, we're looking to expand our existing footprint with new distribution and channel partnerships.
If you are a South African energy provider, PV solar company, energy consultant or have other interests in the clean energy space, we’d love to explore possible opportunities with you.
Below is an overview of our take on the South African clean energy space and the opportunities for carbonTRACK to help solve some of the region's challenges in its transition to a clean economy.

carbonTRACK is a patented Intelligent Energy Management platform with one of the largest monitored PV residential fleets in Australia, NZ, and Africa (GTM Research: 'Global PV Monitoring 2017-2022: Markets, Trends and Leading Players by Cedric Brehaut’). In 2018 carbonTRACK launched in the USA where it is experiencing high demand.
carbonTRACK’s solution has many unique advantages:
- patented algorithms for real-time solar and battery storage monitoring and management
- predictive management using harmonics to alert potential failures in equipment
- patented compressed data communications protocol for efficient, secure and low-cost connectivity to telco networks
Energy users see, act and save
Users can see and remotely control their electricity – helping them reduce consumption, save money and limit their impact on the environment. The platform is solar ready and maximises solar self-consumption to shorten pay-back periods on solar investments
Support grid stability
Regulators, utilities and energy providers can predict energy demand, manage loads remotely and (if required) discharge available batteries to increase supply. carbonTRACK's coordinated response capability enables decentralised energy management.
Promote a clean growth ethos
The carbonTRACK platform is solar and battery ready, and technology agnostic. Its flexible nature allows for further policy, product and service innovation, including ‘smart energy use’ incentive and reward programs, better management of electricity in public buildings/housing, and decentralised storage management solutions.
carbonTRACK connects energy users and energy providers and enables each to monitor, control, automate and share energy. At the building level, energy management meets home automation and at the network level, it facilitates virtual power plants and demand response initiatives.
This brief animation explains how it works.
Home and business owners can monitor their energy use and leverage the system’s advanced control capability to act on these insights – including remote switching and scheduling loads using TOU
Governments and Councils can improve the efficiency of public sector buildings, set higher standards for new developments, and support renewable energy policy innovation
Energy providers can predict grid loads and remotely manage decentralised energy resources, demand response programs and virtual power plants
Solar companies can provide a monitored and optimised solution with a range of ongoing maintenance services
Energy efficiency consultants have behind the meter visibility into clients’ energy environments and can formulate targeted improvement initiatives and demonstrate their positive impact
Battery and storage providers can integrate seamlessly with the carbonTRACK platform
