Join us at Big Bash 2018 to ‘make energy understandable’

05 March 2018


Octopus will be making its presence felt at the ‘Big Bash’ Energy Forum. It’s hosted by the Major Energy User’s Council (MEUC), and is taking place on 6-7 March, 2018.

MEUC does a great job of keeping its members up to date on the energy and water markets. It offers them advice on buying and managing their organisations’ energy and water supply, and providing them with insights and feedback on future policy initiatives around energy.

What’s the Big Bash?

The Big Bash is an annual conference that gives energy users, industry specialists and commentators the opportunity to come together with the membership to debate the key issues facing the energy industry in the UK and beyond. We’re delighted that this year Octopus will be participating, with a stand and taking part in several key debates.

This year’s event is all about ‘Responding to New Market’. Speakers will be discussing rapidly changing energy markets, stubbornly-high power prices and the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy solutions. So, it’s no surprise that Octopus will be in attendance. It’s our aim to support the transition to a clean and smart energy future.

We love talking about renewable energy

For example, did you know Octopus is the largest non-utility investor in onshore renewable assets in the UK, ahead of four of the Big Six? Our renewable energy assets are producing enough green energy each year to power the population of Cardiff, Bristol or Edinburgh.

And you’ve also probably heard about Octopus Energy, which is one of the UK’s top-ranked energy supply businesses (9.6 rating on Trustpilot) and is providing renewable energy (including a 100% green energy tariff) to over 200,000 households and companies. Plus, we’re the only energy provider recommended by consumer champion Which?, so we’ve got lots to talk about during this year’s Big Bash.

During this year’s event our team of attendees and presenters will be talking specifically about:

  • How we provide green power at fixed prices: Octopus is working closely with companies and institutional investors, acting as the catalyst for unsubsidised energy projects that can help drive the transition to clean energy.
  • ‘Next generation’ technology: Our partnership with Reactive Technology has created a smart energy platform to manage on-site energy demand, generation, storage and green energy supply from the Grid. It’s a great way for companies to manage their energy usage and get more flexibility.
  • Clean ‘Transport as a Service’ (TaaS): We offer companies a bespoke service that solve their transport and fleet issues by offering the provision of electric vehicles, depot infrastructure and network capacity upgrades – all as a ‘pay per mile’ service.

If you’re planning on attending Big Bash 18, look out for our stand, and please come over and say hello. And why not follow the conversation on Twitter too? We’d love to get your thoughts.
