Businesses can now join our No Standing Charge Tariff

We’ve released a new tariff with no standing charge. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada!

That means no fixed daily payment amount.

Instead, you only pay according to what you use.

We think it’s simple, innovative and what many businesses say works for them.

Case Study: how locational pricing could save businesses (and everyone) on bills

Assessing the impact that large demand users siting in response to locational prices - moving from South to North - could have on their bills, all GB consumer bills, carbon emissions and the need for new network infrastructure.

Driving a clean heating system: turning an imperative into an upgrade

Report: Consumer flexibility - ready to replace coal

This paper analyses the results from Octopus Energy’s Saving Sessions campaign - part of ESO’s Demand Flexibility Service and the largest ever consumer flexibility campaign. Over 700,000 customers shifted over 1.86GWh of demand flexibility, proving that consumer flexibility is ready to deliver a low-carbon, cost-effective resource to the grid at gigawatt scale today. We look at key results, including customer response and participation levels, as well as recommendations for the future of the Demand Flexibility Service, due to launch in November 2023.

Report: The Grid - the change needed to get renewables connected sooner

The GB grid is broken. Renewable developers are facing queues of up to 15 years to get projects connected. In this paper, we make six recommendations - across a number of different areas that should allow networks to make better use of consumer flexibility to manage constraints, provide users with better visibility about where it's most system-beneficial to connect, and changes which should reduce the time it takes to connect.

Report: Local Flexibility Markets - Future Proofed

This paper looks at the evolving mix of technologies connecting to distribution networks, and assesses what new challenges and opportunities they introduce that should inform local market design. We review the current tools being used to manage local congestion (DNO flexibility markets, dynamic distribution charging and flexible connections), their pros and cons, and recommend a new vision for future local flexibility markets (dynamic distribution charging) that we think will be more resilient to many of these emerging challenges.
