Who we are

Piclo’s mission is to decarbonise the grid. We develop software solutions that make our energy networks smarter, flexible and more sustainable. Our flagship product, Piclo Flex is the leading independent marketplace for energy flexibility services, enabling system operators (such as National Grid ESO, UKPN and a growing number internationally) to source energy flexibility from flexible service providers (e.g. electric vehicles) during times of high demand or low supply. As of 2022, Piclo Flex has 55,000 registered flexible assets and  flexibility contracts awarded totalling £57.4m with 16.6 GW of flex capacity registered and 1.1 GW+ of flexible capacity procured.

Piclo currently provides flexibility services in six global markets: UK, Ireland,  Italy, Portugal, Lithuania and in the United States in New York State. Aside from its leading position in the UK, Piclo has a growing presence in Europe, North America and Australia.

We know “flexibility” can be quite complex to understand at first, here’s a short video that explains “what are flexibility services?”

Inclusivity

Our team welcomes everyone to work together on our mission. We are all in this together after all. We don’t believe that anyone should be discriminated against for any reason, be that age, nationality, gender, race, sexual preferences, religious beliefs, political leanings or disabilities. We welcome diversity among our colleagues and see it as important that everyone is supported and comfortable working with us. Piclo is expanding internationally, so English doesn’t have to be your first language, but we would like you to be fluent.
