Our Story

Reducing Energy Poverty & Improving Energy Security


The majority of us live in a world where electricity is just a part of everyday life, but  1/4 of the world live (including fellow Australians) in energy poverty, meaning they do not have access to everyday power the likes of which we take for granted on a daily basis.  

Portagrid has developed and continue to develop through extensive Research & Development (R&D), a range of Power products that will change lives by providing people worldwide with a reliable, sustainable and economical power alternative. This means giving people the ability to have power for emergency relief situations like earthquakes and cyclones, providing first aid to those in underdeveloped countries, providing internet for education and community engagement.  And the basic ability to power a fridge to keep food cold and a light at night! 

With a passion for renewable energy technologies, the Portagrid team strive every day to make real changes to the lives of people, at the same time creating a sustainable environment for our generation and those to come.
