Our Team

BOOM! is a software platform which saves you time and money by making solar, storage and energy efficiency quick and simple to assess, prioritise and implement.

Our Directors combine over 30 years of energy experience, with a mix of skills, experience and qualifications ranging from engineering, neuroscience, economics, solar design, social science, procurement, financial management and project management. 

We are a modern, distributed team for a modern, distributed energy market. Based in regional Victoria - serving people and organisations throughout Australia.

Tosh Szatow
Tosh has previously been a consumer advocate and CSIRO scientist. He's also been a consultant since 2012, focused on accelerating Australia’s transition to zero emission energy. He is always up for helping you implement “crazy” ideas, so long as they are crazy enough to work! Tosh lives for the moments when ambition become reality, usually after years of blood, sweat and tears. It is in this spirit that BOOM! has come about - years of hard work with people like you, simplifying the way you assess, buy and implement integrated solar, energy efficiency and storage solutions.
Alex Houlston
Prior to co-founding BOOMPower, Alex worked on major new build projects, led establishment of an energy services company for a state government department, and ran procurement for an energy performance contract across 7,000 households. The experience left him frustrated at how time-consuming and expensive it was for property professionals to understand, select and implement solar, batteries and energy efficiency at scale - let alone verify the results… He’s been focusing on making that process quick and easy ever since, and BOOM! is the result!
Dr. David Perry
David is an engineer and scientist, with over 10 years experience delivering highly technical projects across multiple industries, including bio-medicine, energy and agriculture. His passion is building technology that take the brakes off the clean energy revolution. Tools that help people like you make smart and easy decisions about energy, without the needless complexity. David is responsible for product management and the technical architecture of the BOOM! platform. David is also a long-term director of Australia’s first community wind farm, Hepburn Wind.

BOOM! Projects and History. Make clean energy easy. 

BOOM! is the evolution of an energy consultancy firm called Energy for the People, established in 2012. The BOOM! software replaces consulting by giving you the tools you need to make clean energy simple.

Since 2012, people like you have worked with us to assess and deliver over $100million of solar, battery and energy efficiency projects, ranging from standard rooftop solar to innovative models for small-scale solar farms.

We consider our most important work to date as being catalysts and managers of over 3,000kW of solar installed on social housing properties, ensuring some of society's most vulnerable can benefit from rooftop solar. On many sites, people just like you have worked with BOOMPower to combine solar with efficient lighting, heating, cooling, battery storage and hot water upgrades, to help bring power bills under control, for those who need it most.

BOOM! Make clean energy easy - and make a difference. 

If you are creating work or educational opportunities, directly or indirectly, for the long term unemployed, young people at risk, or those at risk of homelessness, we would love to discuss how we can work together. We are committed to donating a portion of our after-tax profits to the cause, including via our partners the Community Housing Industry Association and Give Where You Live Foundation.
