Who we are

Origami Energy was founded in 2013 with a vision to make energy cheaper, greener and more secure. As the world strives to achieve increasingly stringent sustainable energy targets, we believe an intelligent, coordinated network of diverse assets delivers the most cost-effective, secure and flexible solution. Energy flexibility (ability of an energy asset to turn up/down or on/off) is becoming increasingly valuable to help balance electricity systems around the world, as increasing amounts of inflexible and intermittent renewable generation is added to the energy mix.

We have developed intelligent, versatile and secure technology to optimally generate value from this flexibility, in real-time. This technology enables flexibility providers to generate better financial returns from their assets and flexibility users to buy, sell and trade better.

We provide technology through strategic partnership agreements with energy suppliers and traders. We also provide fully funded, turnkey energy storage solutions designed to reduce energy bills, generate new income streams and enhance energy security.  Our technology is architected to deliver global solutions and is already tested and commercially proven in the highly deregulated UK energy market.

We are now looking to hire a Data Engineer. Origami Energy are forming a small team of highly analytical, intellectually adventurous and commercially curious people responsible for shaping and demonstrating techniques which maximise the value Origami can create and share. These market-leading techniques will be central to our technology platform and will inform our business strategy.
