Lights, Solar Action

In this presentation, Dr Scott Watkins will discuss the use of smart, connected lighting and other (Internet of Things) IoT-based technologies to control and monitor home operations (including solar) and improve home energy efficiency. In particular, Scott will highlight his Enphase-monitored solar system, LIFX LED lights and Amazon Echo home voice controller. Scott will also discuss the recent progress of Pollinate Energy, an Australian social enterprise taking technologies such as solar-powered lights to people living in urban slums in India.

Dr Scott Watkins has a PhD in chemistry and is former leader of printed solar cell research at CSIRO. Scott is currently Director of Marketing and Overseas Business with KISCO, a Korean chemical company and the Non-Executive Chair of Pollinate Energy, an Australian social enterprise based in India. Scott is also an enthusiastic adopter of home IoT technologies.
