Originate is our open innovation initiative – helping us to connect, collaborate and co-develop solutions with startups and small businesses.

We aim to complement existing programs already available in the ecosystem, offering selected startups access to our executives and subject matter experts to explore ways of working together.  

For the right businesses, we can help take your ideas to the next level via specific feedback, procurement, trials or potential investment.  

We will work with selected teams on bespoke solutions, connecting you with customers, capital and deep domain expertise as required.  

We are ready to transform the future of energy TODAY.
