Octopus Energy: Built to last

OI world

Octopus Energy was founded with a mission to change energy for the better. 

We're bringing innovative technology to bear in disrupting a market that has been stagnant for too long, in the same way Amazon has for retail, or Uber for personal transport.

But massive change doesn’t happen overnight. And as our founding principle is to deliver our customers value for the long term – not just a fixed term – we’ve built our business to last. 

Built to last

Unlike many new companies in the energy market, Octopus Energy is backed by a major technology investor – Octopus Investments, the UK based investment firm with over £6 billion in funds under management, and market leading positions in tax-efficient investment, smaller company financing, and healthcare – including £2 billion investment in renewable energy generation. 

Octopus has a strong history of backing successful UK businesses driven by the brightest entrepreneurs and most ambitious business owners, including Graze.com, Secret Escapes, SwiftKey, and Zoopla Property Group. 

Our drive is not to make a quick buck, but to change the way energy works for good. 

Octopus have already invested £2 billion in their energy mission, and that's just the start. Our customers deserve nothing less.
