Centrica plc is an international energy and services company. Our purpose is to provide energy and services to satisfy the changing needs of our customers. We’ve been serving customers for over 200 years and aim to be at the centre of their daily lives - central to helping them run their world.

Under the Centrica Business Solutions brand, we deliver integrated energy solutions for businesses and other large energy users, combining distributed energy technologies and a variety of commercial options to improve performance and cost management, drive decarbonisation, strengthen resilience, and create opportunities for growth.

We believe that the electrification of transport will be fundamental to global decarbonisation efforts and are committed to working with customers and partners to drive progress in this space.

We are proud members of the Optimise Prime programme – the world’s largest trial of its kind, developed to come up with practical ways of overcoming the up-front costs that are currently holding back many of the country’s biggest commercial vehicle operators from making the switch to electric vehicles.


Led by global data technology solutions provider Hitachi Vantara and electricity distributor UK Power Networks, the trial will see up to 3,000 electric vehicles from Centrica, Royal Mail and Uber take to the road, supported by distributor Scottish & Southern Electricity, Hitachi Europe and Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions.

"As the UK’s largest energy supplier and operator of one of the largest fleets in the country, we know better than most the challenges facing the energy and transport sector as we look towards a low carbon future."

“We believe that meaningful partnerships will be key to unlocking the electrification of vehicles in the UK and beyond, and look forward to driving forward opportunities to develop thought leadership, innovation and collaboration in this space.”
