DS Energy Celebrates Five Years of Delivering Savings

DS Energy was founded in 2015 by David Muir and Shane Kennedy and launched early 2016. The two founders have been developing and delivering solar projects together since 2009 and wanted to establish a services-based business which would deliver high quality installations for the industry.

The company has since evolved into one which is not only regarded as one of the best installation teams in the industry, but also works closely with end clients to design, to develop and deliver outstanding projects.

In our five years of operation, DS Energy has installed around 30MW of Solar power - or 90,000 Panels - which would reduce 36,200 tonnes of CO2 every year.

DS Energy now provides premier design, supply, installation and maintenance of solar and electrical products for public and private customers throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Together David and Shane have built impressive individual CV’s which include the Stockland Retail and Industrial roll out, Vicinity’s shopping centre program, the CCA 3.5MW and National Storage (100 sites), and clients including the University of Queensland. Queensland University of Technology, Queensland Government, Wide Bay Water, Autonomous Energy and Locality Energy.

At one point, David and Shane had been involved in either developing or delivering, eight of the top 10 behind-the-meter solutions in Queensland starting with the University of Queensland in 2011.

DS Energy also believes in giving back to our community and works actively with three community groups including The University of Queensland Junior Bullsharks, University of Queensland Rugby Football Cluband the Gamebred Academy’s Anti Bullying program
