Intelligent Octopus gives you six hours of smart charging every night at a super low rateFind your day rate and standing charge
Smart charge your car when the grid's greenest
Intelligent Octopus pairs directly with your car's charging system, using KrakenFlex machine learning to optimise your charge.
Each day, we'll map a Smart Charge plan, charging to fill you up using the most green electrons possible – you pay a super low cost for any Smart Charging and help balance the energy grid at the same time.
To get early access to Intelligent Octopus, you need:
- 🤓A smart meter we can connect to
- 🔌A compatible electric vehicle or charger (right now, any Tesla)
- 📱An iOS smartphone to manage charging via our app
This is the very first version of Intelligent Octopus to hit the market. We're working fast to integrate with more chargers, electric vehicles and operating systems.
More compatible cars & chargers coming soon
Manage smart charging via our handy iOS app
Set your charging level, and what time you need to reach it by. Just plug in, and we'll give you your ideal charge during the greenest times. We'll either schedule your charge during the cheap hours of 11.30pm and 5.30am or, if we schedule your charge outside those times, we'll give you the super cheap rate for your car and home electricity.

Want to join Intelligent Octopus?
You'll need to:
Sign up to Octopus Energy
You must be an Octopus Energy customer to join Intelligent Octopus. If you're not a customer yet, sign up today.
Have a smart meter we can connect to
That's second generation SMETS2 meters, or SMETS1 meters made by Secure. Not sure what type you have? Find out via your Octopus online account, or if you're not a customer yet, here's a handy way to work it out.
If you don't already have one, we can arrange to install a SMETS2 smart meter at no extra cost. These are suitable for most homes (with some exceptions), and we'll contact you to set up an appointment as soon as there's availability in your area – though this can take some time depending on pandemic restrictions, availability of local engineers and other factors. Read more about getting a smart meter installed with Octopus.
Answer some quick questions about your charging setup
We need to ask a couple of questions to check we can integrate with your electric vehicle charger. If we can't connect with your setup just yet, we'll take your details and get in touch when the tariff is more widely available.
Download the Octopus Energy iOS app
Use the Octopus Energy app and get setup on the ‘Devices’ tab, and manage your charging.
Read and accept our terms & conditions
Once we've confirmed we can integrate with your device, and we're taking half-hourly readings from your meter, we'll get you switched over to Intelligent Octopus.
Register your car or charger to get ready to charge!
Use the app to register your car or charger, set your charging preferences and activate a Bump Charge if you need to charge right away.
Intelligent Octopus is a product of our labs, available now to customers through our beta programme.
Intelligent Octopus is a beta product. If you're OK that some things may not work first time, that installations and processes may take longer than we'd like, and that on occasion data issues with smart meters can take significant time to fix or prevent things working at all, but that you'd like to work with us to make world-changing energy tariffs a reality, check this box so we know you're onboard. You will always be able to switch to one of our fairly priced standard tariffs at any time.
