SSE, the UK’s leading industrial and commercial energy supplier and the UK’s leading generator of renewable energy, selects Origami Energy’s technology platform to offer customers valuable new energy management services.

SSE has selected Origami Energy, following a highly competitive selection process, to support SSE’s delivery of valuable new flexibility services to its industrial and commercial customers.

SSE will offer real-time, flexible energy management services through Origami Energy’s technology platform, to help customers unlock the increasingly valuable flexibility they have in their consumption and generation of electricity.

Energy flexibility is growing in importance globally as the electricity industry embraces the structural changes caused by the shift towards decentralisation, decarbonisation, and digitalisation. SSE’s Virtual Power Plant (SSE VPP) knits together all types of distributed energy resources including demand side response, storage, combined heat and power, generation and electric vehicles to offer capacity and flexibility to different markets.

In an important strategic move, the collaboration with Origami Energy provides a significant enhancement to SSE’s market-leading energy supply proposition, enabling industrial and commercial customers to access new revenue streams in the flexibility market whilst taking a more sustainable approach to their energy use. SSE also plans to operate some of its own embedded generation assets through the platform.
