Autonomous Energy is the leading solar and energy solutions Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) provider in commercial, industrial and small utility scale markets for customers who care about Safety, Quality and Performance. Our focus is on designing and building turnkey projects in solar PV, energy storage, microgrids and energy efficiency.

Since 2003 our multidisciplinary team has delivered an impressive portfolio of projects, several of which are unprecedented in the Australian market. We are a 'full-service' energy solutions company - offering bespoke solar, energy storage and energy efficiency services, projects and advice - and we approach every project from a holistic perspective. We foster a culture of innovation and thrive on delivering a better technical result for our clients. Our reputation within the clean energy industry is second-to-none. We employ some of the most highly-skilled, respected renewable energy experts and our customer-centric approach to every project guarantees that the vast majority of new business comes from referrals and repeat clients.

Many of our engineers are specialised in the field of solar photovoltaics - meaning we know solar inside-out - so clients can be assured that the information we provide is the most complete, relevant, objective and accurate in the industry. We build and maintain exceptional relationships with partners, suppliers and market-leading brands - and will only recommend the very best.

Over the past 15 years we have been awarded multiple prestigious industry awards, including the CEC's 'Best Solar Design and Installation in Australia' award on three occasions, and we have helped some of Australia's most well-known organisations achieve their sustainability goals.
 

Mission


Our mission is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and facilitate the transition to sustainable energy systems as efficiently as possible. 

Vision


Our vision is to be the leading solar and energy solutions Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) provider in the commercial and industrial scale markets for customers who care about safety, quality and performance.

 

Values

SAFETY

Our number one priority is the safety of our people, clients, contractors and the broader community across all our projects and business. We are constantly vigilant; we invest significantly in safety to ensure all risks are identified and mitigated; we go well and truly beyond compliance and we are committed to continually improving our safety practices. That's why we lead our industry in relation to WHS management.

QUALITY

Quality is in our DNA. We believe that system design and installation quality is as important if not more important than the quality of system components. We constantly innovate to improve our design processes and construction methods to deliver excellence across the entire lifecycle of our projects. Naturally we only use the best in class equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers. We believe that there is a significant return on additional investment in quality.
 

PERFORMANCE

We are a high-performance team delivering high-performance projects. We take full responsibility for the delivery of project outcomes including a dedicated Service Team, responsible for monitoring system performance, operation and maintenance (O&M) and our innovative, bone-fide 100% performance guarantees. Our experience, motivation and industry expertise allow us to consistently exceed customer expectations and industry standard benchmarks. Our real world system performance results speak for themselves.
 

Our Story

Our Story


Since inception in 2003, Autonomous Energy has grown organically to become one of Australia's most successful solar and energy solutions Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies. Our entire team shares a passion for clean energy and transforming Australia’s energy system. With our headquarters in Sydney and delivering projects right across the country, we have developed into a true industry leader, never wavering from our commitment to quality, safety and performance.

We have come a long way from our early days when Mark Gadd and Matthew Linney, two motivated environmental and renewable energy professionals, worked out of the spare room, kitchen and lounge room of a rented apartment. Mark and Matt, both directors in Autonomous Energy, also comprised our very first installation team! Over the years of successful project delivery and reinvestment back into the business we have grown to over 50 amazing team members and many more contractors. Our multidisciplinary engineering, design, project management and construction teams have a genuinely bespoke approach to projects and exceptionally high care factor when it comes to customer service. We are renowned for our track record in delivering complicated and often unprecedented projects that require specialised engineering, high degrees of innovation and customised solutions.

In response to the tremendous demand for our services and in recognition of our opportunity to continue to grow rapidly for many years to come, in 2018 additional directors Simon Whiston and Neill Whiston joined Mark and Matt on Autonomous Energy’s Board.
