Why work for PowerTec?

Do you want to be part of the solution for the electricity network transformation?

PowerTec works closely with utilities and industry to realise distributed, networked intelligent control systems and turn-key battery energy storage systems for electricity networks with Distributed Energy Resources (DER). Our technology is a key enabler for Microgrids, Embedded Networks, Electric Vehicle Charging Stations and renewable generators by supporting them to operate on constrained electricity networks and to dynamically access electricity markets.

We are a technology scale-up business: Our PowerCache® (inverter/battery energy storage system) and PaDECS® (Parallel Distributed Energy Resources Control System) offer effective solutions to the challenges of the rapidly evolving electricity network, and to leveraging DER for energy market services. This combination of technologies puts us in a unique market position, and we have entered a path of exponential growth.

Do you prefer providing comprehensive solutions rather than working in silos?

Our multi-disciplinary team carries out system development and turn-key project delivery services from feasibility studies through to software development, product design, 3rd party component integration, technology components import, assembly and commissioning.

PowerTec has delivered some of the most relevant Australian Microgrid and Energy Storage reference projects and has won the 2017 Clean Energy Industry Innovation Award for developing the Mini Grid Stabiliser at Mooroolbark, VIC.
