bp, Pure Planet launch digital service to monitor energy use

British energy major bp and 100% renewable energy supplier Pure Planet announced a partnership to launch a new  digital energy service that will support households, electric vehicle (EV) drivers and energy consumers in the UK.  

The new digital service brings smarter control of renewable home energy, electric vehicles, batteries,  smart heating and solar power, as well as carbon-offsetting options, onto one easy-to-use consumer  platform. It will be launched exclusively on Pure Planet’s award-winning app and website next month.  

The low-carbon technology platform aims to help people simply and more efficiently manage all  of their varied energy usage — at home and on the road. The digital services will be available to every Pure Planet Member and will be embedded into their app and online energy accounts.  

The move unites the award-winning digital renewables retail expertise of Pure Planet with the e mobility focus and scale of bp. Pure Planet, which launched in 2017, is Britain’s first energy supplier to offer both 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon offset gas as standard across all tariffs.  bp is a shareholder in Pure Planet. This exclusive UK partnership builds on the existing relationship  between the two companies.  

Initial bp-powered features for Pure Planet Members include:  

  • Personalised insights into energy consumption at home and on the move  
  • An estimate of how many CO2 emissions members are saving with Pure Planet  
  • EV drivers will see real-time data on their energy usage, car battery status and cost per mile
  • Ability to link any car (petrol & diesel) to the app to see and estimate of how much CO2 it emits and compare it with an electric vehicle  
  • Recommendations for other sustainable solutions to help them save even more, such as smart thermostats and EV home charging points  

“Future energy services are more dynamic, personal and digital. And they must be low carbon. This  new service helps people manage their energy better by giving them all the information they need to  reduce their emissions,” said Pure Planet co-founder and CEO, Andrew Ralston.

“By deepening our relationship with bp, we’re creating Pure Planet 2.0. We’re building on our low  carbon and green contribution to society by offering exciting new tech services and low carbon  insights and are looking forward to sharing these with a wider audience.”  

“Industry, business and individuals all have a part to play in achieving a net zero future. Equipping  energy users with knowledge and understanding can help them better manage their energy and make  more sustainable choices. We are delighted to partner with Pure Planet to develop this smart tech  which can help inform smarter energy decisions,” said Felipe Arbelaez, bp’s senior vice president for Zero Carbon Energy.
