Together, we bring experience from venture building, artificial intelligence, open source, energy and government. The team is led by Lucy Yu, who has nearly 20 years of expertise in technology, policy and regulation. She has led teams in the UK government, the UN and worked for some of Europe’s brightest start-ups.
No commercial distractions.
We prioritise projects that make impact, not ones we think are interesting.
We act like a tech start-up. We apply lean and agile principles to the problems we solve. Continuously experimenting, learning and building robust datasets and models.
Our reports and models are free for anyone to use, challenge and build on.
We invite in new ideas, embrace rich data sets and work with people from different backgrounds. From economists and data scientists to policy experts and information designers.
We get people together, inspire change and most importantly, make change happen.
We were founded by Octopus Energy in 2021. The granularity of their data provides us with an unparalleled insight into current consumer behaviours in the energy landscape across the world.
Whilst we are powered by Octopus Energy, we are ultimately autonomous and are a separate legal entity. We are not a revenue-generating organisation and have no commercial distractions. We are here to build tools that enable decision-makers to help us achieve net zero.
