clEaN ENErGY MUst BE for EVErYoNE.


We believe energy must be accessible, clean, safe and affordable for everyone. Existing technologies for harnessing solar energy and other renewable energy sources, combined with energy storage solutions, enable everyone on our planet to have energy that is aligned with this principle. We believe access to affordable clean energy is a basic human right as it is the basis for solving water and food supply issues, and for providing access to light, communication technologies and education. Only when all people have their essential needs covered and have access to basic modern tools will our world be free and fair and humanity will access its full potential. However, with these rights and freedom comes responsibility and ones freedom ends where someone elses freedom is infringed. The same technologies are quickly eliminating all excuses for continuing to use any dirty or dangerous energy sources and we believe no one has the right to pollute or create virtually endless environmental liabilities just to cover todays energy needs. We believe everyone bears individual responsibility for switching to clean and safe energy sources as soon as possible. Georg Hotar Director Michael Gartner Director

Welcome to Photon Energys universe

The remarkable developments in solar energy technology and pricing over the past decade are resulting in grid parity conditions in more and more countries and in unprecedented adoption of solar energy to power our homes and businesses during this decade the decade we are calling the Solar Decade.

Micro off-grid power


Avoid costly grid connections and generate power where you need it not where the grid is. Our fully integrated hybrid system with battery and generator backup for up to 30 kWp gives you peace of mind even on the worst of days. Designed for: homes, small businesses, farms, telecom antennas and remote infrastructure.

Micro on-grid power


Reduce overall power costs and protect yourself from rising electricity bills with your own power supply. Power storage allows you to use as much solar power as is available while connection to the grid will cover you when needed. Designed for: homes, small businesses and farms.

Large off-grid power


Have your own competitive power source anywhere the sun shines and massively reduce the volatile fuel and logistics costs of electricity generation. Our hybrid solution combines photovoltaic solar arrays with batteries and back-up generators to ensure a stable and reliable power supply on demand. Systems are highly scalable starting from 30 to 300 kWp. Designed for: remote communities, commercial buildings, hospitals, schools, defence and mining applications.

PROjECTS. Project development from concept to completion
Maximising performance starts in the planning phase. Having the experience to foresee development hurdles is invaluable to any project. There are many variables that can complicate and delay a project, and knowing how to anticipate issues and mitigate risks is a skill Photon Energy has gained across several countries. We examine, plan and develop projects in a highly skilled manner to ensure timely realisation and maximum performance of completed power plants. Feasibility studies and project planning Permitting and regulatory process execution Counterparty negotiations and public consultations Risk management and cost control
