About 5B

About Us

5B is a clean technology innovation powerhouse that accelerates access to low-cost, safely deployed, gigawatt-scale solar energy. We are transforming solar technologies to realise our vision of a world where abundant, accessible, and affordable power from the sun meets all our energy needs.

5B delivers solar solutions which are safer, faster, lower-cost, lower-risk and more energy dense than conventional fixed-tilt or single-axis tracking technologies. 5B has a strong track record of commercialising and licensing innovative solar solutions, with more than 70.7 MW of 5B solar technology deployed globally.

Our name 5B, is a reference to the almost infinite amount of energy potential in the 5 billion years of sunshine the earth has left, and is intended to provoke the question; ‘How will we use it?’

From our corporate headquarters in Sydney, Australia we have scaled rapidly and our team is located across the US, Chile, Germany and India. Our 5B Global HQ features R&D, advanced manufacturing, deployment and testing facilities. We also have manufacturing and testing at our 5B Industries facility in Adelaide.

Traditional custodians of the land, where our Sydney HQ is located, are the Gadigal and Bidjigal people of the Eora Nation.

In the spirit of reconciliation, 5B acknowledges the traditional custodians of Country throughout the land we call Australia as well as their culture, identity, community and connections to land and sea. 5B pays respect to their Elders past and present, and extends that respect to all Indigenous peoples globally. 5B endeavours to learn from, build relationships with, and reciprocate opportunities to all First Nations peoples.

Why 5B?

5B has transformed the delivery of solar projects from the ground up with its prefabricated, modular, scalable, rapidly-deployable flagship 5B Maverick solar technology.

5B Maverick is driving a paradigm shift in the delivery, integration, and operation of clean energy, from project-by-project, in-situ construction to rapid deployment of standardised products and solutions.

In this way 5B is accelerating the transition from the intensive, high-risk field environment which characterises today’s solar farm construction sites, to a controlled, lower-risk environment via pre-fabrication and rapid deployment technology.

Rapid on-site deployment
Plug & play integration

To further accelerate the adoption of solar energy globally we have established the 5B Ecosystem; a network of Component, Assembly, Logistics, Deployment and O&M partners. This enables us to reduce supply chain friction and turbocharge the adoption of solar energy production globally.
