Our vision for e-mobility and renewable energy has driven us since 1999 and is deeply embedded in our company.
Tritium’s journey grew out of solar car racing at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane Australia.
In 1999, team SunShark took third place at the World Solar Challenge and was awarded the GM Sunraycer Award for Technical Achievement. For the team, this award symbolized technical innovation that could likely be translated to commercial, real-world applications.
It was being part of this experience that made Tritium’s founders—now Chief Executive Officer David Finn, Chief Product Officer Paul Sernia, and Chief Technology Officer James Kennedy—passionate about renewable energy for transport and electric vehicles. This innovation at the World Solar Challenge sparked demand for the team’s products from other solar car racers.
As a result, Tritium was founded in 2001—operating as a micro-business and selling the Gold Controller, a product which was first used in the SunShark. Since then, the company has continued to grow through innovation and investment.
