Garry Harding is the CEO and Co-Founder of EnergyFlex. With 30 years’ experience in aerospace engineering and business development, he thrives on challenges, especially those never attempted before. A Royal Australian Air Force veteran, Garry co-founded EnergyFlex to apply his experience with advanced technology and systems to two of the world’s biggest challenges: climate change and the energy transition. After experiencing first-hand the frustration of rising energy bills at home, Garry became determined to empower all Australians with the tools and knowledge to take control of their energy use, reduce their bills and emissions, and become Renewables Ready.
