Energy app firm Pure Planet relocates to Bath

By Nick Batten on 9 February, 2018

Pure Planet, the app-only renewable energy brand, has relocated to Bath, becoming the first tenant of the newly opened Spaces shared-services office in the city centre.

The firm – which offers householders 100% renewable energy for “less cost” than polluting power – claims it has “grown rapidly” since launching in Bristol last spring and that its move to Bath will allow for “further expansion.”

Entirely app-based, Pure Planet offers service through Artificial Intelligence and claims to “provide energy without a markup,” so that customers pay no more than Pure Planet pays for the energy on the wholesale market.

As part of a new breed of modern, independent energy suppliers, Pure Planet is competing directly with the ‘Big Six’ energy firms, including British Gas, EDF, and EON.

Andrew Ralston, chief executive officer and co-founder of Pure Planet, said: “We chose Bath because of everything it offers: a strong sense of independence; a dynamic tech industry; its progressive, entrepreneurial community – and, of course, its unrivalled beauty.

“We are growing rapidly and will be looking forward to attracting the huge talent pool that exists in Bath and surrounding areas. It’s a dynamic and exciting time to be part of the community.”

Pure Planet is a ‘Living Wage and Disability Confident employer’ and also claims to be the only energy company to be signed up to the UN Global Compact, which places sustainability and social responsibility at the heart of business.
