Sustainable Tasmania is alive! Well our new website is — look around to learn more about our exciting peer-to-peer energy trading platform.

The future is technology driven and across the world and even in areas of Australia, peer-to-peer energy generation and consumption is becoming the foundation of future building developments including housing sub-divisions.

With the rising cost of energy and a mixed national debate about the future, Sustainable Tasmania is about giving our primary producers an element of independence.

The main advantages are:

  • No middle man — people make deals on their own terms;
  • Everyone saves money;
  • Transparent dealings directly with other consumers; and
  • Participants belong to the Co‑operative.

Peer-to-peer energy trading allows:

  • Trade renewable energy to other agri-businesses at an agreed price;
  • Choose to buy solar energy from a neighbour, local wind or solar farm;
  • Choose to source as much energy as possible from distributed solar systems across the primary industries sector.

Peer-to-peer solar energy is a logical development in the fast-growing sharing economy which see things such as housing (Airbnb), cars (Uber) and loans go from person to person rather than a large commercial enterprise to consumer.
