The new home for clean energy innovation in Australia
EnergyLab is dedicated to supporting clean energy innovation in Australia
We are hosted by the University of Technology Sydney in their historic Blackfriars School House. Whether you are a startup, large company or non-profit, we look forward to working with you to create the clean energy future.
How we support clean energy innovation
Innovation is a team effort, and transitioning our energy systems will require collaboration between a wide range of actors. We create constant opportunities for people to connect and collaborate by running regular events and hosting clean energy startups in our coworking space.
The problems facing the energy sector are complex and the details unknown to the general public. Through hosting regular events and workshops we help entrepreneurs, industry and community groups gain a more nuanced understand of the problems to better enable them to come up with the solutions.
Clean energy innovators need tailored support; simply applying the lessons learnt by the software industry won't work. EnergyLab is working to develop and disseminate an understanding of how to most successfully develop and scale up clean energy innovations.
Gain access to a wealth of support by renting a desk or applying for our Acceleration Program
Renting a desk in our coworking space gives your company access to a community of like-minded individuals, mentorship and other free resources.
Ready to take your business to the next level? Our Acceleration Program has been developed with cleantech accelerators around the world to give your business the tailored support it needs.

"People underestimate how hard energy innovation is. The IT revolution was easy in comparison. The pace of IT innovation was extremely fast. It's a different thing to generate paradigm shifts in energy."
EnergyLab was established to overcome the unique challenges facing clean energy startups. Every preconceived notion of how innovation works has been questioned to ensure our startups have the best chance at success.
