Solar Car Park Shading

Autonomous Energy has an unrivalled track record in designing and building solar car park shading systems across Australia. We take a bespoke approach to designing and building your solar car park and are the foremost specialists in this area. Our multidisciplinary engineering, project management and installation teams are committed to delivering our turnkey solar car park projects to the highest possible standards of quality, safety and performance. We have genuinely pioneered the deployment of this technology in Australia and we continue to innovate and install solar car parks in a variety of new and innovative applications.

Autonomous Energy installed the largest solar car park shading system in NSW at Sydney Markets, and recently surpassed our own record with construction of the 1.1MW solar car park at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) - currently the largest solar car park shading system in Australia.

We have built a range of large solar car parks at busy live sites, construction sites and also on the top floor of existing multi-storey car parks. Our experience and specialisation in delivering turnkey solar car parks substantially reduces risk for our clients in terms of quality, safety, timeline, performance and budget. Solar car parks are complex, challenging, multidisciplinary engineering and construction projects that require vastly more expertise than simply installing solar panels on roofs.

In 2017 our solar car park at the University of Southern Queensland won the prestigious Clean Energy Council award for the Best Solar Power System in Australia (large scale category).


Solar Car Park Shading


We deliver on-ground solar car parks and multi-storey solar car parks nationwide. Every site is different and building a solar car park is a complex project. Solar car parks are multidisciplinary projects spanning architectural and solar design, structural engineering, geo-tech, solar and electrical engineering, car park design, development regulation and live site construction management. We provide the complete end-to-end solution from feasibility, advisory and design through to procurement, construction, operation and maintenance.
Autonomous Energy has delivered 911kW of solar car park shading for Sydney Markets Limited (SML) across three distinct project phases. Over two thirds of the system (640kW) is installed on the top floor of a new multistorey carpark. This project was designed and managed by Autonomous Energy’s experienced in-house solar engineering team and 100% of the construction work was undertaken by Autonomous Energy’s in-house solar installation team. Such a genuine end-to-end turnkey project - delivered entirely by an individual solar EPC company with no subcontracting - is unheard of in the Australian market for projects of this scale.

We are always happy to take clients on a tour of these ground-breaking facilities - if interested, please contact us. To read the full Case Study, click here.

Autonomous Energy has recently completed a 2.2MW solar roll-out for the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). The project featured a 1.1MW solar car park at USQ’s Toowoomba campus which is currently the largest solar car park in Australia. ​To read the full Case Study, click here.
