Our Story

Our story goes way back. In the early 1980s, Tirthankar Banerjee was part of a university group developing the concept of electrifying remote villages using solar and batteries. Considering the high cost of solar modules at around US$10 per watt, it was a brave effort. In the mid-1990s, he formed his own company and participated in several World Bank-funded rural minigrid projects. Moving to Australia in 2001, Tirthankar focused on solar inverters and played a key role in constructing one of the first solar farms by an Australian company. In 2013, he launched Oztron Energy, initially concentrating on commercial solar projects, including a 100kW off-grid solar hybrid installation in Bangladesh and a feasibility study for a solar farm in Togo, West Africa. Binayak Banerjee, with his impressive academic credentials and experience at Western Power, joined Oztron, bolstering their pursuit of excellence in Renewable Energy engineering. Oztron now looks forward to the challenge of incorporating more renewables into our energy mix, utilizing advanced control technologies and artificial intelligence.
