Our Team

Dave Sharp

General Manager – Founder

After many years of fixed solar energy system design, development and installation, Dave developed EcoQuip’s first generation mobile solar tower in his home driveway in 2013 after recognising a need for a reliable, cost effective and ecofriendly alternative to the diesel fuelled mobile lighting equipment.

A mechanic by trade, Dave’s practical knowledge and drive for innovation led EcoQuip on a global quest to identify the capabilities required to develop a “step change” technology to disrupt the traditionally diesel fuelled mobile lighting tower market. The process identified a unique US military equipment manufacturer and aerospace electronics technology partners to assist EcoQuip to create the EcoQuip technology platform.

Dave’s ability to find third party capability to achieve ‘moon-shot’ technology objectives has been instrumental to the development of EcoQuip’s equipment solutions. Dave is also an executive director of Volt Power Group Limited (ASX: VPR).
