Nikhil Jayaraj

Jayaraj’s commitment to providing an alternate energy source that is clean, green and sustainable has resulted in Regen experiencing 300% growth in just 3 years. Under his expert guidance, Regen Power was ranked 55th fastest growing company in Australia by the Financial Review in 2020. The company has also succeeded in making it to the Financial Times’ list of top 500 high-growth companies in Asia-Pacific 3 times in a row in 2020, 2021 & 2022.

His strong leadership and motivation have led the company carve a spot for itself as a household name in Western Australia, and an upcoming brand in the eastern states, owing to the business expansion to New South Wales, South Australia, and Queensland. His rich experience in the renewable energy sector, customer-first approach and excellent customer service procedures have led Regen Power to win Product Review awards in 2020 and 2021.


Jayaraj has a double master’s degree in engineering management and information and communication technology with a major in e-business from the University of Wollongong. He is an accomplished professional with demonstrable skills in sales management, negotiation, operations management, engineering, business strategy and contracts negotiation. He has played an instrumental role in commercialising solar power systems in the Australian and overseas renewable energy sector. Despite lockdown restrictions, he ensured a record number of installations in 2021. Jayaraj is currently pursuing Doctorate in Business Administration at Curtin University. His thesis titled “Solar PV adoption in Australia and policy effectiveness” is an empirical study on adoption of solar photovoltaic (PV) and battery storage systems in the residential sector and the effectiveness of government policy as an enabler. His research will help the stakeholders in renewable energy understand end user needs and amend current policies accordingly. His research will further aid developing markets effectively plan implementation of solar powered systems.


With Jayaraj at the helm of affairs, the company has completed some remarkable projects like the designing and commissioning of a 500KW floating power plant in India and administering a unique USD$50M 50-megawatt ground mounted solar farm project in central Vietnam. His motivation and hard work have earned Regent Power more than 35,000 clients, unique projects, and exclusive agreements with Tesla and Huawei. His innate sense of responsibility and belief in giving back to the community is evident through his noble gesture of nominally priced or free of cost solar power installations for local organisations such as churches, temples, medical centres, clinics, and community centres. The core concepts of energy conservation and sustainable environment have been the guiding force for him and led to Regen Power installing 35,000 solar systems summing up to 100,000KW or 100MW solar capacity. They produce 480,000 units per day and 175 million units in a year. These contributions helped reduce power plant emissions and achieve significant environmental benefits for Australia and the global community. Additionally, the company has contributed the energy equivalent of planting 30,000 trees, saved 500 million litres of fossil fuels, and helped avoid 600 million kg of coal usage.
