Evergen was founded with a vision of lowering the cost of energy to all Australians, using clean, renewable power and intelligent technology from CSIRO.
When CSIRO and AMP Capital came together to discuss the future of energy, their shared vision became Evergen – a transformational idea for the future of Australia’s energy.
Evergen is a new breed of energy services company that sells and manages intelligent home energy systems comprising solar power, batteries and intelligent energy management developed by CSIRO. Evergen is unlocking the potential of renewable energy by installing intelligently managed solar battery systems, interconnected with the grid, giving people the ability to store solar power for when they need it and providing a cleaner and more reliable electricity system. The technology gives customers greater control than ever before on their home energy.
The energy intelligence from CSIRO provides an incredible level of sophistication, allowing for deep insights into customer’s energy needs and the ability for each Evergen system to operate differently, in an optimal way for each specific home.
Evergen is Australia’s first, next-generation, intelligent home energy system and has the investment and technical backing of CSIRO and leading investment manager AMP Capital.
