OVO’s vision is to deliver clean, abundant energy for everyone. We started out as a retail energy company with a belief that we could do energy better through fairer pricing, simplicity and unrivalled customer service. As we evolved it became clear that OVO could bring even more value to its customers, transitioning to a smart services company that would develop innovations in energy technology and propositions.

In the last two years we have made several acquisitions which enable us to offer grid balancing services, smart electric heat, vehicle to grid charging and exciting propositions for electric vehicles, in-home insurance and distributed storage systems.

All of this allows us to bring cheap, low carbon energy to our customers to power their lives, support the integration of more renewables onto the grid, and help balance the grid during peak times.

We are not a company driven simply by short term returns and profit, we believe in our responsibility to society and to the environment, and are determined that our business strategy and company behaviour reflects this commitment.

We believe in fuelling human progress with clean and abundant energy for all. 

We were set up to always find a better way and challenge the status quo: we want to be the good guys, find a way, and build something great. We embrace simplicity, transparency, and treating people and our planet fairly.

We understand that attracting and keeping the best talent is key to our bright future, so our people will always share in our success. Our benefits are pretty nice too.

We celebrate diversity and value equal opportunity; We want to build a team which represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, and we decide employment on the basis of merit and potential.
