Join the Ecotricity Smart Grid

Ecotricity’s smart grid scheme gives businesses the opportunity to lower their energy bills, earn extra revenue and help create a more stable, greener grid for Britain while doing so.

How it works

Our smart grid connects green generators such as wind and solar farms, storage substations and businesses who use our energy. It’s digitally controlled and uses technology capable of monitoring and adjusting the supply and use of electricity. This avoids the peaks and troughs that make the traditional grid so costly and wasteful.

For example, when demand spikes we can turn on inactive wind turbines to boost supply. However, we can also smooth off the spike by slightly lowering demand at hundreds of participating businesses. Dimming the lights or lowering the air conditioning for 60 seconds makes all the difference, and it’s done automatically. Think of it as having your own remote energy manager helping improve your energy usage.

How your business can benefit

We’ll attach a wireless box to your meter that will intelligently control your energy use, making it more efficient. You’ll have lower energy bills and will receive a revenue share for taking part in our smart grid.

If your business is an energy generator and/or has battery storage, you can benefit from payments for generating, storing and exporting energy to our smart grid when we need it, with revenue share payments on top.

How to join

Joining our smart grid is easy – let’s talk! Email or call 0345 600 1994.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
