This ‘eBay for energy’ will allow UK businesses to buy electricity directly from specific sites, and help renewable generators sell their electricity directly to their neighbours, local businesses or schools for the best price.
Ofgem, the energy regulator, is watching the project closely.
Open Utility aims to create a resilient and sustainable energy industry, its co-founder and CEO James Johnston said. “This project brings together the UK’s leading renewables-focused energy supplier with a customer centric technology company from the heart of London’s Tech City. Together, Good Energy and Open Utility are taking a significant first step towards giving people more control over their energy, and helping support a future powered by renewables.”
Good Energy, a 100% renewable energy supplier, aims to tackle climate change by substantially lowering the greenhouse gas emissions associated with power generation. The CEO and founder of Good Energy, Juliet Davenport, said that Piclo “puts consumers at the heart of energy and could unlock the potential of renewables in the UK. This is something we passionately support as a pioneering independent energy supplier.”
Both commercial consumers and renewable generators are being recruited to take part in a six month trial. There are still a few places available so if you’re interested in taking part, register your interest by contacting Open Utility at email@example.com or Good Energy at firstname.lastname@example.org
