Recording: Release the Kraken: How Technology is Unlocking Greener, Cheaper Energy, Mar 11, 2023

In September 2020, a UK-based tech unicorn on a mission to disrupt the global energy sector opened its first US headquarters in Houston. Most energy companies run on legacy systems that stifle innovation and creativity in the energy market…but not this one. Running on a purpose-built cloud-based platform, Founder and CEO of Octopus Energy Group, Greg Jackson, will discuss future energy systems and how the group's proprietary Kraken technology will accelerate the transition to renewable energy in Texas and beyond.

The panel will discuss the dynamics of the shifting energy market in the US, and how bleeding edge technology can be used to disrupt an out-of-date industry to unlock the cheapest possible energy for consumers while simultaneously accelerating the renewable energy transition.
