OVO started as an idea around the kitchen table. A couple of friends listing what they wanted from their energy supplier, but weren’t getting. Things like fair pricing. Great service. Clear and simple information. Technology to make managing your energy easier. And above all, honesty and openness.
Six years and 500,000 happy customers later, we’re proud of what we’ve achieved. But there’s plenty more to be done. We may have outgrown the kitchen table. But we’re still working to make energy as effortless, simple and inexpensive as possible.

More tech. More autonomy.
Since day one, we've used technology to solve some of the biggest problems in energy, revolutionising a broken industry for the benefit of customers.
And we're not stopping there. Now, we're reimagining the entire energy system. To do it we're introducing smart energy products into people's homes and increasing renewable energy on the grid for a carbon-free future for all.
Everything we've achieved has come from our culture of empowerment and ownership in tech - Feel free to take a look at our Tech Blog.
