Intelligent Octopus

Help us test drive Intelligent Octopus

Your EV or Home Battery probably came with a charge timer or an app, how does Intelligent Octopus do it better?

Intelligent Octopus integrates with your EV, or home battery, and creates a customised charging schedule every time you plug in. You tell us how much you need to charge, and by when, and Intelligent Octopus will optimise based on the speed of your charger and the wholesale energy price. This ensures you get the cheapest possible charge.

A basic charge timer switches on and off at the time you set. Smarter charges can be programmed to take advantage of lower prices at night, but that’s the limit.

Intelligent Octopus does it better.

Use the Octopus Energy mobile app to connect your device and choose your preferences. Intelligent Octopus will optimise your charging, prioritising night and off-peak times when power is cheapest.
