Introducing Amber

Amber is an energy retailer and smart tech company rolled into one. For a simple monthly subscription fee, through the Amber app, you can access cheaper energy prices by shifting your usage from peak periods to times of the day when there are more renewables available in the grid.

With the Amber app, you’ll be able to view both a 12-hour price forecast and a live price tracker, so you can plan your energy use. You’ll also be able to monitor your usage and savings, so you stay on top of your monthly bill.


Own a home battery? Or thinking about buying one?

Shifting your usage isn’t the only way you could save money and help power a more energy efficient Australia. If you’re a solar and battery owner (or thinking of becoming one), the Amber for Batteries platform will automate your system in line with wholesale pricing.

You’ll be using power and topping up your battery from the grid at times when energy is cheaper and there are more renewables available. Amber’s SmartShift technology automates discharging and selling back to the grid, so you can get the full upside of your exports when demand is peaking. You can also view how your battery is being optimised and how much it’s saving you by using the Amber app.
