We are excited to announce that our Demand Flexibility Service (DFS) campaign in partnership with National Grid ESO for winter 23/24 is now live. Learn more here.


Reduce pollution from dirty power plants.

The Virtual Power Plant created by your appliances is used to offset the use of dirty polluting power plants that are otherwise used during times of peak demand.


The easiest way to act together to make an impact.

Imagine getting everyone in your entire city, or even your neighbourhood, to reduce energy use at the same time. You can't? equiwatt does this with ease.

Earning rewards for saving energy has never been this easy. And the best part is that you're helping the planet while earning money!

Watch your energy use go down, and your rewards go up.

Got a question? 

Do I need to change my energy supplier?

You don't need to change energy suppliers or have a special tariff to be a part of the equiwatt community! equiwatt is a free app that can be used by any household in the UK.

Do I need a smart meter to take part?

You will need a working electric smart meter and half-hourly readings enabled to take part so we can verify how much energy you’ve managed to save.

What are equivents?

equivents are peak time energy events during which equiwatt alerts you to shift your home's energy consumption. Once the event ends you will earn rewards for avoiding the use of expensive, polluting energy.

What rewards can I earn?

The equiwatt Gift Store features an ever-growing range of rewards to redeem with your equiwatt points. From eGift cards to support the amazing work of organisations such as GlobalGiving and the World Land Trust to vouchers for retailers such as John Lewis, Amazon, Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's.

You can even use your points to redeem smart technology such as a TP-Link energy monitoring Smart Plug to help you earn even more points every month with equiwatt!
