Clean Energy Structures
To generate, store and deliver the cheapest energy on the planet.
How we do it
We build Energy Wealth by maximizing energy generated while minimizing energy used.
What we do
Iron Matrix is a patented, modular steel construction technology that allows anyone to make buildings out of solar panels.
Robot manufactured parts, flat-packed for transport and hand installed without cranes, scaffolding or earth works.
Expandable & Reconfigurable
Built by You
Congratulations to the team at STORYBOX on their launch today at Paramatta Train Station! An incredibly talented and creative team brought to life this beautiful application of Iron Matrix for community building in a public space. It will share digital storytelling,...
The Spark Festival is a few weeks away. Presented as "a celebration of entrepreneurship," it's 10 days of virtual innovation, business and start-up programming. A broad range of topics will be shared. Everyone is invited to participate in this event...
BP have just released their latest annual energy outlook report. Predictions for liquid fossil demand is dire. "Low carbon transition leads to a fundamental shift in the global energy system" Peak oil demand was in 2019 at 100 million barrels per day. "Demand for oil...
The power generators of the future will be building owners. Energy can now be generated, stored and delivered cheaper than grid distributed fossil fuels. This Iron Matrix solar roof can power an electric vehicle over 1,250km (780mi) every week and costs no more than a...
Those who get paid together, stayed together?Carley Morgan will be presenting today at the Innovation Bay/ ARENA Renewable Energy Founder Forum. This must be love ...... of all things energy, business and thermodynamics! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZggMd5xEIq4
Here's an Australian developed throwdown to @ElonMusk's solar roof - an Iron Matrix solar roof generates three times the power for one third the cost of a Tesla solar roof. Iron Matrix integrates a standard solar panel as a roofing material and ensures it will seal,...
A quick flyover our latest Iron Matrix project.
Legendary futurists Tony Seba predicted the precipitous drop in solar energy generation cost. His new report 'Rethinking Humanity' once again looks into the future and cites #IronMatrix You can read the whole report here; https://www.rethinkx.com/humanity
Our first residential project will a full solar roof is well underway. Foundations are all in within 2 weeks and ahead of schedule. This was a site with an unknown quantity of granite and clay but the piled foundations allow us to put an Iron Matrix foundation down on...
Why we’re different
Iron Matrix was specifically developed to take advantage of the one feature solar panels have but fossil fuels will never have – a flat sheet of glass.
In 2018, solar panels became cheaper than installed structural plywood. However, traditional building structures would stress a solar panel in unacceptable ways. Tempered glass can not be cut or subject to tension or compression.
Iron Matrix was designed to be a lower cost, strong structural steel framework that allows solar panels to be mounted directly to it.
Interior designs can be fully customized to create the look and feel of any traditional home.
An Iron Matrix roof will de;over 3 times the power for 1/3rd the cost of a Tesla Solar Roof.
Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems.
Iron Matrix structures replace traditional building materials with solar panels to provide electricity at no incremental cost.
Combined with the latest battery technology, Iron Matrix can generate, store and deliver energy cheaper than fossil fuels.

The Iron Matrix Prototype
The structure was built to ‘lock-up’ in 100 days by only 2 people in 2017/18. No cranes, no scaffolding and no heavy equipment. All materials were transported down a 300 meter dirt track on a trailer behind a four wheel drive.
There are 41 solar panels in total. 30 on the North-East and North-West walls. It is estimated that these panels will have ~50% efficiency but are effectively free given they are as cheap as almost all other cladding materials. 11 more panels are used as solar awnings to provide ~30kWh of energy per day.
The prototype home will be 100% off-grid with a hydronic HVAC system and a 24 Volt DC power system throughout. It is located in a bushfire hazard zone (BAL 12.5) and will collect all rainwater.
The patented structural steel parts are removed from within the structure to create rooms during or after construction. Foundations are made from the same Iron Matrix steel parts, cut to suit the topography of any site.
They understand the energy of yesterday and the energy of tomorrow.
