New energy supplier arrives at Discovery Park on a mission to challenge the Big 6 16 October, 2018

Energy supplier ENIGYS – a regulated, fully licenced energy supply company, trading as GOTO Energy – has joined Discovery Park with ambitions to serve the gas and electricity needs of domestic and microbusiness customers in the UK.

ENIGYS (through the brand GOTO Energy) will be a dynamic challenger brand to the Big 6 energy companies which include the likes of British Gas and EDF Energy.

The products offered to consumers have a green, environmental, socially conscious focus.

This includes electricity that is generated from 100% renewable sources (primarily wind) and natural gas, which is 100% carbon offset.

The company obtained its energy supply licenses in July 2018 and will begin full-scale commercial operations in March/April 2019.

ENIGYS has plans to scale up and expand its workforce quickly, with plans in place for 20 permanent job roles within the next 12 months.

Nikki Goode, Director of ENIGYS: “We are excited to join the Discovery Park community as Kent’s only domestic energy supply business. We look forward to progressing our business plan to deliver affordable, green energy products to people in local communities. Discovery Park offers our business a great base from which we hope to work with other innovative businesses to create more jobs for Kent.”

They are among a number of new arrivals on site bringing more jobs and opportunities for East Kent, including investment advisor, Apex Incorporated, and mechanical ventilation specialists Built Environment Technology.

Discovery Park offers office and laboratories solutions for every stage of business in a collaborative environment  with more than 3,000 people currently employed. These companies range from science research and education facilities to the businesses that support them – such as recruitment firms, marketing companies and accountants.

Lauren Moore from Discovery Park’s Investment Team, said: “It’s been fantastic to welcome new businesses onsite over the last few weeks and, for them, it’s an exciting time to be joining the park. Discovery Park is Kent’s global science and business park, with world class facilities that has helped to make this site a magnet for businesses of all sizes.

“Our new arrivals are at the start of their journey with us; while those expanding are seeing the benefits of being located here. We wish them and all our tenants every future success.”
