Beam Solar is a software platform and market place for behind the meter solar and batteries. It is used in the following way:
1. Partners (energy brokers, consultants etc) use our software platform to assess different solar and battery options for their Customers (Australian businesses that use energy). This process is highly automated so that we can assess very accurately >100 solar and battery combinations for a site in <1 minute with little human effort.
2. Customers are presented with >100 solar and battery options with different financing options and associated business case information. The platform guides them through the decision process so that they can make a decision to install solar and batteries, and the exact configuration this will be.
3. Suppliers (solar and battery EPCs) are pre-registered and compete to deliver Customer's projects in a two round procurement process on the Beam Solar platform. An Initial Offers round to firm up the project cost estimates and shortli...

3. Suppliers (solar and battery EPCs) are pre-registered and compete to deliver Customer's projects in a two round procurement process on the Beam Solar platform. An Initial Offers round to firm up the project cost estimates and shortlist suppliers, followed by a more detailed Final Offers round which can be either a Request for Proposals (RFP) or Weighted Reverse Auction.
4. We project manage the installation of the solar and battery system, measure and verify energy savings and provide ongoing monitoring of the system after installation.

Beam has multiple revenue streams from this process:
1. We charge customers to assess solar and battery options on our platform
2. We charge partners and suppliers for use of the platform including customizations and additional services
3. We take a commission from the sale of solar and battery systems on our platform
4. We charge customers (via the successful supplier) for additional services such as project management and owner's engineer services
