We’re a leading energy technology company providing a better experience for our customers through transparency, honesty and simplicity. Better for the planet, through real long-term investment in renewable generation and a low CO2 future. Better value, by throwing away the old business models of the “Big 6” and instead building a business that’s fit for the 21st century. We make energy green and flexible for consumers, with fair and transparent pricing. Through our home developed platform, cloud-based billing, and sophisticated use of data science, modelling and AI, we’re redefining what is possible in energy.

Our approach to technology and innovation helps separate us from our competitors. We want to ensure we are constantly pushing the boundaries and allowing new ideas to flourish. That's why in 2019 we created the Hatchery; a space where we can investigate ideas from an early stage and establish if they could become viable products.

The Octopus Energy Hatchery is the autonomous arm of Octopus Energy, based in North Bristol. We develop new ideas into companies in the energy and sustainability sector. Although, if we spot an opportunity in another market we’ll certainly look into it! We do the market research, business model development, user research, user testing, and software development to establish the viability of a future business
