Company Background

Allume Energy (Allume) is a Melbourne based solar technology company focused on unlocking solar access for apartments and multi-tenanted buildings. Allume has developed a world first product, the SolShare, to allow a single solar system to be shared by multiple units in the same building. It requires no change to existing electricity supply and metering infrastructure and sits entirely behind the meter, making it an affordable and scalable solution to expand access to solar globally.
