About us

We're bringing Britain the smooth running homes of today and tomorrow

Making a difference

There’s more to us than gas and electricity

We’re empowering communities to use energy efficiently, supporting households in need and helping to build skills for a bright future.


Our people are our best asset: everyone has a role to play in driving us forward

There’s nearly 30,000 of us. And some of us have worked our way up from apprenticeships and trainee schemes.

Codes of practice

We work to a set of standards to make sure we’re always doing the right thing

We’ve got guidelines for everything from handling complaints to being more energy efficient.
