Perth-based energy-efficiency start-up Ecocentric has announced the appointment of Dr Ross Waring as chairman.
Waring has an extensive background in pioneering green technology applications, oil and gas technologies and compact power systems for distributed generation. The company hopes to harness his expertise working with start-ups to commercialise technology and prepare it for trade sales and global listings.
Ecocentric CEO Tim Bray said Waring’s appointment will bring a wealth of international experience to the Perth-based start-up as it seeks to commercialise its ‘Numen’ energy-efficiency device.
“Numen is a disruptive technology which will empower businesses and households to make decisions about their energy use so they can significantly reduce their bills,” said Bray.
Developed in collaboration with the CSIRO, the Numen energy system uses cloud-based technology to monitor energy consumption in real time. Consumption data is used to provide insight into the efficiency of a building’s electrical infrastructure, helping to identify opportunities for energy reduction, safety monitoring, energy production and improved energy quality.
