Leon Heng – CEO, ENTARCTIC
ENTARCTIC reduces the energy consumption of cold storage warehouses and this industry has one of the highest electric energy consumption rates in the commercial building sector, consuming ~100TWh annually (half of data centres). However it is highly fragment, and underserved due to small contract sizes and landlord-tenant complications.
Matt Lambert – CEO, Carbon Compass
Carbon Compass’ mission is to empower mining organisations and individuals to take control of their carbon footprint through the development and implementation of innovative, user-friendly software solutions that accurately measure, monitor, and reduce carbon emissions of mine sites.
Joel Tay – CEO, PHNXX
