COP26: Octopus Energy and Elia Group join forces to build a cutting edge smart green energy grid

Octopus Energy Group’s Kraken Technologies and Belgian energy innovator Elia Group have signed a deal at COP26 to help Belgium and Germany transition to a smart green grid.

The partnership will allow energy system operators to use Octopus Energy’s flexibility platform, KrakenFlex, and Elia Group’s energy data affiliate, re.alto, to use green technologies such as electric vehicles (EVs) and heat pumps to balance the grid and support the shift to a renewable energy system.
