Our history

Our short history is one of rapid but sustainable growth.

Conrad Energy was set up as a flexible energy generator in 2016, helping to balance the grid when renewables can’t meet demand. Our drive to do this in a more environmentally friendly way has led to huge investment in new, greener technologies such as batteries and in software to make processes more efficient – saving money and reducing carbon.

We began working with business customers in 2019, buying and selling energy and we set about developing and acquiring our own renewable generation assets – including our first solar farm – in early 2023. In less than a decade and driven by transformational technology, we have become a leading Independent Power Producer (IPP) and the UK’s number one flexible energy provider.

Everyone at Conrad Energy is proud to be facilitating an efficient and reliable transition to greener energy, powering a changing world as we fast forward to net zero.
