Our better energy areas of focus
Smart meters and devices give customers new levels of control and data on their homes and behaviours. Developing new products and services to unlock this potential.
New business models
Energy firms are changing, going beyond the bill. Working with consumers and customers to build better energy and better services.
Consumers today are looking to do more than simply buy cheaper energy. Creating a low carbon future for more efficient and reduced energy consumption.
