London, June 2022- OVO won two awards – Energy Supplier of the Year and Net Zero Innovation Technology – at the Energy Awards 2022. These awards celebrate the best of the UK’s energy sector and burgeoning net zero transition.
The Energy Supplier of the Year award recognised OVO’s dedication to providing both its people and customers with the inspiration, information, and tools they need to understand – and reduce – their carbon footprint via its solution to the climate crisis: Plan Zero.
The award also recognised the resources and support OVO has provided its customers throughout the energy crisis. For example, its support package to Stepchange worth £2m, and the launch of the industry’s first Open Banking digital tool, providing bespoke repayment options and an accurate picture of affordability.
As an employer, the judges praised OVO’s People Offer in particular, putting flexible working and Inclusion & Diversity initiatives at the heart of employee engagement.
The Net Zero Innovation Technology Award recognised OVO Energy Tracker, with the judges describing it as “a compelling product which has the scope to really engage users with reducing their energy footprint”. OVO Energy Tracker aims to make the benefits of a smart meter tangible to customers through showing where in the home they use their energy, and how their carbon impacts compare to other members.
Raman Bhatia, CEO of OVO, said:
“These awards are a tremendous achievement for us and a huge acknowledgement of the commitment and determination of everyone at OVO to support our customers, create groundbreaking technology and create an inclusive place to work . I’m really proud of our ambitious teams who put Plan Zero at the heart of everything they do.”
Christina Scott, CPTO of OVO, said:
“This is a fantastic achievement for everyone that worked tirelessly to bring the OVO Energy Tracker to life. Energy Tracker not only helps customers manage bills at a time of financial hardship for many, but also empowers them to take meaningful steps to reduce their carbon footprint.”
