We’re transforming how solar farms are deployed rapidly
In this ausbiz interview our co-founder Chris McGrath explains why experienced large-scale solar energy developers like bp and AES are excited about our technology.
We can already deploy a soccer field-size solar farm in a day with 10 people. Our AUD55 million Series B funding will allow us to further develop our technology and significantly enhance our robotic capabilities.
Rapidly Decarbonizing Economies
How 5B is helping companies and countries decarbonize.
Solar power is playing a huge part in the decarbonization of economies around the world. But we need to move faster. 5B will be participating in the #COP27 climate summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt to reinforce the need to deploy solar on a huge scale at breathtaking pace to limit global warming to 1.5°C and avoid the impacts of catastrophic climate change.
Luckily, speed is our specialty at 5B. Dr Nicole Kuepper-Russell shares how 5B is working out how we decarbonise the world as rapidly as possible.
The Climate Crisis is Creating Amazing Careers for Youth
Youth contribute to solving climate change in so many ways. Youth are so aware of the climate crisis and eager to contribute to solutions.
The opportunities that the global decarbonisation movement offers young people are incredible. Clean energy jobs represent the biggest share of employment in the global energy sector and the biggest potential for job creation.
5B is part of this revolution - we’re a proudly Australian company specialising in rapidly deployable, prefabricated, plug-and-play solar arrays for off-grid and grid connected facilities. Our young 5Beings are working at the cutting edge of some of the largest solar deployments in the world.
Women Bring Unique Perspectives to Addressing Climate Change. But We Need More
5B celebrates the unique perspectives that women bring to addressing climate change.
At 5B we’re seeing enormous interest from women who have the imperative to address climate change. 5B women bring unique skills, experiences, and perspectives and as we look to the future, that’s only going to grow.
Solar That is Sustainable for Communities and the Planet
5B is working on solar solutions that are sustainable for communities as well as the planet.
The rollout of net zero and decarbonisation solution needs to benefit communities and broader society, as well as the planet.
Renewables present an amazing opportunity to empower communities, particularly in remote and rural areas, as well as being good for the climate.
