About Empower Energy

Empower Energy is one of the most innovative on-grid battery storage companies in Australia. It was founded in 2010 in Sydney, Australia by, Ezra Beeman, an expert in distributed energy resources and related analytics, who had identified that storage would soon become a major player in the grid-connected power system.

Ezra’s vision for Empower is to build the first economic (cost-effective) battery storage system and business model, which will pave the way for others, and enable storage to become widely deployed in Australia and worldwide.

Empower Energy was awarded a competitive grant by Commercialisation Australia in 2012 to develop the ElektroBank battery, and specifically, its patented storage boosting technology. This patent has been cited more than 12 times by major global companies including Ford, ABB, etc.

We’ve spent the past 5 years working on our battery storage-anchored, all-in-one system, focusing on developing a future proof, high-quality product that is able to deliver more value for your money than any competitor over the lifetime of the unit.

We believe our competitive edge is in developing a product that is extremely fit-for-purpose in the unique Australian market. No other country has the same generation mix, industry cost-to-serve, tariffs and solar energy that Australia does, and storage products from other markets are therefore not optimised for our unique conditions.

You can see the benefits of our Australian market focused design when you get a Free* Benefits Assessment from us. This report identifies the configuration that will give you the best value for money, and you can compare how our competitors match up against our own device, the ElektroBank!

With our core hardware platform developed and certified against Australian Standards, we are now focused on the next generation of key features and functionality:

  • Higher solar PV MPPT rating (5-10 kW)
  • More efficient round-trip topology design
  • Commercial scale product (~50 kW and 80 kWh)
  • Multi-phase product (2 and 3-phase)
  • Virtual Power Plant (VPP) integration and optimisation
  • Water heating integration and optimisation

And of course, we are always striving to bring down our system costs each year.
