Where to next for Australian solar PV?

A major shakeout in the Australian solar PV sector is on the cards, as sales fall from government incentive-driven highs. So who will survive and why?

Last week I caught-up with Jeremy Rich – CEO of Energy Matters, one of the top 20 solar PV renewable energy certificate creators in the country and a major solar retailer.  The company also has an associated sister firm, Apollo Energy, that is a wholesaler of solar components such as PV modules, inverters and framing.

In 2011, Energy Matters was recognised by Deloitte Technology as one of the top 50 fastest growing technology companies in Australia, coming second in their category having experienced 379 per cent revenue growth over the period 2009 to 2011.
