Founder

Using knowledge and experience of the UK deregulated energy market, Matthew became heavily involved in the deregulation process in Australia through 1994.

More recently Matthew began Flow Power, formerly known as PG Energy. The Licensed Electricity Retailer specialises in addressing the needs of large customers across the National Electricity Market, in South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland. This innovative business works with customers across industries as diverse as cold storage, quarries and agriculture to leverage the wholesale electricity market.
