Meet the Perth finalists

A technical device and data platform that weighs resident’s general rubbish bin and generates data on each household’s waste output. This data encourages households to face their waste and make adjustments to their consumption and waste behaviours and allows the council to offer a financial incentive (such as a reduction in quarterly rate payments) to households that meet specified waste thresholds.

Hubble platform aims to help house owners, architects and builders quickly estimate an energy house rating (and suggest potential upgrades) for improving the building’s energy performance from the concept design stage. At the same time, energy savings and environmental benefits are also shown for consideration.

We use sensors on bins to manage an ISO compliant GHG inventory. With this data, we can help cities and business move to 0-Waste and 0-Carbon while providing efficiencies.

PowerPledge aims to lower carbon emissions by empowering more organisations to adopt clean energy which ultimately leads to a carbon neutral future.

Bringing into Australia refurbished wind turbines from Europe. Installing small wind farms sub 20mw on mining/industrial sites and remote communities throughout Australia. We will develop, construct and operate these wind farms that will be installed alongside solar, batteries and hydrogen generators.

Regeneration of agricultural landscapes in Australia through the application of Regenerative Agricultural principles to land management. This regeneration will result in agricultural ecosystems that are more resilient to the impacts of climate change lower the risk of production, increase profit and brig a new income stream in the form of carbon credits to the farm.

The Smart Aquaponics system will be a fully functional and efficient system that integrates both hydroponics and aquaculture to enhance production of fish and vegetation. Remote monitoring of the system will be available through the development of an online dashboard. The system will incorporate a self-sustained cycle through the use of recycling fish waste and excess nitrates for plant uptake whilst providing the fish with high protein black soldier fly larvae from composting the organic waste produced by the system.

Vertical/Urban farming, using aeroponic/hydroponic packages in an isolated environment, growing dwarf fruit trees, with solar system as energy for lighting system. It saves water and doesn’t require pesticides, soil, or direct sunshine.
