EnergyLab Event

I’ll be sharing our Iron Matrix experiences alongside Jemma Green (Powerledger Chair) and Greg Morrison (Curtin Professor, Sustainability) at the Perth EnergyLab event on Tuesday, starting at 5:30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the discussion on uncovering WA’s clean energy opportunities. Chaired by EnergyLab’s father, the delicately wooded, Piers Grove.

Architectural Evolutions

We’re getting architects involved now to create  a range of alternative structures, shapes and finishes.

Free Solar

In 2005, Iron Matrix was just an idea. I worked in the Oil and Gas industry and no one there felt any threat from solar panels which cost over five dollars per watt. By comparison, five dollars worth of diesel generates the same amount of electricity for 50,000 hours (6 years). But there were two…
