We’ll never stop making the smarter future easier, because zero has never meant so much.
Our mission is to lead the way in smarter, more sustainable energy. We’re committed to innovating, exploring and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to deliver the infrastructure and technology that powers our world more sustainably.

A company built on heritage and purpose
With our roots firmly laid down in smart energy technology for over 20 years, Calisen has been on a transformation journey to become the industry leader we are today.
Our heritage has been built upon the deep knowledge, experience and passion created by our legacy companies Calvin Capital and Lowri Beck, to bring smart metering to the UK. With those companies now united under the Calisen brand name, we move forward stronger as one team with one corporate identity.
With the launch of Plug Me In and the acquisitions of Advizzo, MapleCo and Utility Warehouse Home Service, we move forward to becoming one of the UK’s largest owner and installer of energy transition technology for homes and businesses. With one strategy and one team our deep sense of purpose sets us apart – to deliver Smarter Energy for All, building a cleaner and greener future for all.
