structures made from solar panels
Iron Matrix is founded on the principle of energy wealth where we minimise the amount of energy spent to access the greatest amount of energy.
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
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 deliver 3 times the power for 1/3rd the cost of a Tesla Solar Roof.
Iron Matrix is all about maximising energy gained and minimising energy spent. A low energy structure naturally becomes low impact. Here's a picture of our foundation piles immediately after installation. Fire proof, adjustable height and installed with hand tools by...
US patent granted! It took over 3 years but we've now increased the population covered by our bolted structural steel connection from 30 million people to over 300 million. A special thanks to Patent Attorney and EnergyLab mentor Pasquale who had the experience and...

This week I shared my thoughts with Nucleus Wealth on the topic of Solar and Battery technology and what the impacts will be on the electricity grid.
Nearly five years ago we took a couple of years break (1 million minutes) from jobs in Oil & Gas to pursue a mission so audacious and so improbably, we dared not tell anyone our true goal. It looked like we were building an off-grid house. But the real goal, was...

After 20 years of working on technical and commercial approvals for major energy projects, I can confidently say that when it comes to predicting energy consumption, there's only one thing that matters - the delivered cost per unit of energy. Dollars paid per kilowatt...
For those who'd hoped the winds of political change would usher in an energy transition for Australia, I offer these words of solace..... Regardless of which political party is in power, when it comes to making sustainable, meaningful changes to how we consume energy,...
