Open Utility is developing Piclo, the UK’s first online renewable energy marketplace. For the first time in the UK, people can buy and sell electricity at prices they agree on.
Piclo launches in October 2015 for commercial energy buyers and renewable generators. The trial is funded by the UK Government (Department of Energy and Climate Change), and is being delivered in partnership with Good Energy, a 100% renewable electricity supplier.
Open Utility was named “Green Startup to Watch 2014” by Greenwise Business, and “Rising Star 2014” by Founders Forum for Good. The team of 8 is based in Shoreditch, London, and has raised over €1.1M in grants and investment.
