Our Background

Leading up to the deregulation of the Australian Electricity Industry in 1994, it was identified there was a need for monitoring key areas of service delivery, particularly electricity supply quality, reliability, billing accuracy and energy management.

Our founder and current director of the company, Matthew van der Lindon derived knowledge from experiences of the deregulated energy market in the UK.  Utilacor has been heavily involved in the industry since the deregulation of the market.  The deregulation of the energy industry in Australia has seen much turmoil, rapid price fluctuations and volatility and moderate performances by retailers and network distribution companies. The deregulation of the gas industry has seen similar results for consumers.

Utilacor Pty Ltd commenced operation in 1994.  The company has immense depth of knowledge of the energy industry, combined with extensive statistical, IT and programming capabilities. Our vision is to continue to deliver clients with quantifiable benefits.

Combining our industry expertise with a powerful and purpose built Energy Management software tool - kWatch®, the company is well positioned to manage the energy needs of our customers’ business enterprises.
