When it comes to kicking carbon, knowledge is power. That’s why, if you’re an OVO member, you can use our Carbon Tracker to get a carbon emissions total that shows you the impact of your transport and energy use. (Amazingly it’s over half of your carbon footprint!)2
OVO Beyond is an upgrade that you can add to any of our energy plans. It brings you the green energy and technology you need for your journey towards zero carbon – lightening your carbon footprint and helping you save energy.
For £6 a month (free for the first 3 months) you get:
100% renewable electricity1 and 100% carbon-neutral gas1.
3 carbon-fighting trees, planted on your behalf each year4.
Personalised energy insights, from Energy Spotlights.
Lucky you asked! Our Carbon Tracker shows you the impact of your transport and energy use on the planet (which makes up an eye-watering 59% of your carbon footprint2). And it’s free for all OVO members to use.
Already got our Green bundle? Or our Green Electricity or Green Gas upgrades (or both)? You can still get OVO Beyond. It’ll replace those upgrades by bringing you the same carbon-cutting 100% renewable electricity1 and 100% carbon-neutral gas1, plus:
3 carbon-fighting trees, planted on your behalf each year4.
Personalised energy insights from Energy Spotlights.
Energy-saving actions from our Zero In tool.
It’s worth bearing in mind, however, that the number of trees we plant on your behalf will reduce from 5 trees per year to 3 trees per year. Why? It’s because we wanted our OVO Beyond to bring you more for less, so we needed to make a change to the number of trees we plant.
OVO Beyond reduces your yearly net carbon emissions from the energy used in your home to zero.
Pretty cool, huh? That’s because as well as providing 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon-neutral gas (15% green gas and 85% offset), we offset all associated lifecycle carbon emissions that come from the production and use of your energy. We do that by supporting UN-led REDD+ carbon reduction projects that are certified to the Verified Carbon Standard.
We buy our renewable electricity through Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs). And we buy our green gas through Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin (RGGOs). Just click on the links to read more about how they work.
To cancel OVO Beyond, just log in to your online account, and go to the ‘Your Profile’ page where you can hit ‘cancel’. It’ll be applied to your account the following month.
1By providing 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas (15% green gas and 85% offset) and offsetting all associated lifecycle carbon emissions involved in the production and consumption of your energy, OVO Beyond reduces your yearly carbon emissions from the energy used in your home to net zero. We buy our renewable electricity via renewable certificates (Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs). See here for details on Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates and how these work. We buy our green gas via renewable certificates (Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin (RGGOs). See here for details on Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin and how these work. We offset the remaining emissions by supporting UN-led REDD+ carbon reduction projects that are certified to the Verified Carbon Standard.
Bill savings are based on you making changes to your energy habits through your use of OVO Beyond. Actual savings will vary depending on your energy use and the changes you make.
2Based on analysis carried out by the Carbon Trust for OVO Group (2019), 26% of an average individual’s carbon footprint in the UK comes from energy. In this analysis, the carbon footprint includes the following lifestyle categories: energy, transport, shopping, food and drink and holidays. See table below for each category. This excludes emissions from things that the average person cannot directly control such as supporting the NHS, defence, government bodies, etc.

3 Savings of up to 10% are based on an estimated reduction in energy use for a dual fuel medium user (3100 kWhs electricity and 12000 kWhs gas) who upgrades to OVO Beyond without having a smart meter or smart thermostat installed yet. Savings are (1) calculated on this estimated reduction in energy use in the first year of having OVO Beyond, and (2) based on reducing your energy use by using your smart meter In-Home Display (IHD) and the OVO app to make changes to your energy habits (like optimising heating settings, switching lights off). Savings are an estimate only and your actual savings will vary depending on your energy use and the changes you make to your energy habits.
4We plant 3 trees for every OVO Beyond Member through our award-winning I Dig Trees programme with The Conservation Volunteers. Tree planting can help to reduce carbon emissions by absorbing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Between April 2018 to March 2019 we planted at least 156,000 trees, bringing the total number to over 700,000 trees planted since 2015.
6OVO Beyond is designed to work with the latest smart meter version. We’ll contact you to offer you a free smart meter installation if eligible. If we can't install a smart meter within 3 months of you signing up, or if the smart meter you currently have is ineligible, we’ll cancel your OVO Beyond subscription.
