Future Smart Cities grant awarded to Green Frog Systems
The SA-based company, which specialises in commercial solar lighting and energy storage systems, was honoured in a list of applicants to be offered funding by the federal government.
The Entrepreneur’s Program, delivered through the Department of Industry and Science, will assist Australian entrepreneurs, and small and medium businesses to develop innovation, research and drive solutions for business growth and competitiveness.
The $760,837 grant has been awarded to Green Frog Systems to accelerate its innovation and scale its business operations in readiness for new markets. The company will provide modular, smart solar lighting systems for use in public places, delivering solutions at highly competitive prices for government, councils and mining.
Anticipated to be launched in Q4 2018, Green Frog Systems’ new generation product for smart cities will offer pioneering solar lighting solutions with high-volume, all-night capability, zero maintenance and intelligent smart monitoring features. Details of the company’s innovations are still being kept confidential, and will be revealed prior to product launch.
“The award has come at a pivotal time for Green Frog Systems,” said David Wilson, founder and CEO of Green Frog Systems.
“People will be scratching their heads and wondering, who is this little company in Adelaide? We have deliberately stayed under the radar, quietly scaling our business for some time and upping the ante in terms of our innovation. People are going to be blown away by our tech, which is going to make a real difference as Australia integrates Smart City Technology. We are delighted with the grant award, it’s fantastic news for South Australia and we’ll waste no time in the development of these technologies.”
