Open Utility provides digital services for energy suppliers. In 2015 the company partnered with Good Energy to create Piclo, an online marketplace for renewables, which lets people buy and sell sustainable energy directly at prices they agree on. Piclo was built with £500,000 of funding from the Department of Energy and Nominet Trust. It’s currently in the trial stage, but is expected to be brought to market in 2016.
