Octopus Energy NZ Team

Our people

It was a global search for the most innovative minds in energy that led Octopus to New Zealand. Our team is local and we leverage our scale and smarts to make energy easy as for Kiwis. We offer Kiwis appealing incentives to consume power in ways that are better for their wallets, and better for the planet, without impacting their quality of life.
