Use the Octopus Energy app to set how much you'd like to charge up, and by what time – and we'll handle the rest. Intelligent Octopus pairs with your EV or charger to optimise your charging to the very greenest times, and always on your super cheap rate.
Get six hours of cheap, green energy from 11.30 pm to 5.30 am every night, for home and charging. You can save up to £200 a year vs. Octopus Go.
With our handy, hassle-free app, you're in control. Tell us when you need your car charged, and by how much. Track your energy spend at a glance, broken down by charging and home use.
Need your car sooner? Bump Charge from the app at any time to charge your car at normal rates.
When combined with solar generation in the day we are very pleased with the average daily pence per kWh. The website and app make it all easy to monitor and manage.
Love Octopus Energy. I have been with them a few years now and am currently testing a beta Intelligent charging product which is going really well!
You need either an Octopus-compatible EV OR charger

Intelligent Octopus is a beta product. Some things may not work the first time, and installations and processes may take longer than we'd like. Third party tech like In-home Displays won't always work, and on occasion data issues with smart meters can take significant time to fix or prevent things from working at all.
If you're cool with this, and you'd still like to work with us to make world-changing energy tariffs a reality, check this box so we know you're on board. You will always be able to switch to one of our fairly priced standard tariffs at any time.
Log in to your account to switch to Intelligent Octopus through your online dashboard.
No problem. We'll get you up and running, and install a smart meter if you need one at no extra charge.
What happens next? We'll help make your journey to Intelligent Octopus as smooth as can be, and keep you updated along the way.
Intelligent Octopus only works in homes with a smart meter that sends us half hourly readings. That's second generation SMETS2 meters and some types of SMETS1 meters. Not sure what type you have?
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). Everything you need to know about smart meters with Octopus.
It typically takes us 14 days to connect to your smart meter. We'll let you know once we're ready to roll.
Once you're set up on the app and ready to go, your tariff will change to IO and you'll be ready for your first smart charge!
