Energia marks ten years at the top.

September 01

The largest independent energy supply company in Ireland has an annual turnover in excess of £1bn (€1.2bn) after only ten years in operation.

Belfast-based Energia celebrates its tenth anniversary this autumn and is marking the milestone by slashing the current price of renewable energy for SMEs.

Newly appointed chief operating officer Tom Gillen says Energia now supplies a fifth of the island of Ireland's gas requirements and over a quarter of the Republic of Ireland's businesses with electricity.
"This is a remarkable achievement for a company which was established as a start up business in Belfast in 1999." says Mr Gillen.

"In the ensuing decade we have developed the most advanced trading operation of its kind anywhere in Ireland north or south and have been able to use this system to provide tailored price solutions, maximum efficiencies and best value for our 50,000 business customers," he says.

Energia employs 190 people throughout Ireland. 100 are employed in its Belfast headquarters.

In 1999 the energy market de regulated with the opening phase limited to the large users. One of the first to move to a ‘second tier’ supplier was H&W who have remained with Energia throughout the period.
