Greg Jackson, Octopus Energy’s CEO, launched smart heating system Cosy Octopus at the WIRED and Octopus Energy Tech Summit in London. It will be available from December.

It consists of the ‘Cosy 6’, Octopus’ new heat pump; ‘Cosy Hub’, a home controls system; ‘Cosy Pods’, room sensors; a bespoke smart tariff; and the ‘Octopus 5-star service’.

Cosy Octopus is free for homes that don’t need any work to fit the system after the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). Homes that need adjustments will get the system from around £3,000 after the grant, the company vowed.

The system will enter the market with a 6kW heat pump, aimed at a typical three-bed UK home, with more and larger models following over the next six months, it added.

‘Cosy 6’ is Octopus Energy’s first heat pump. It was designed by Dr Jason Cassells, CEO of Octopus-acquired Renewable Energy Devices, now known as Octopus Heating, and manufactured in Craigavon, Northern Ireland, and has six patent applications pending.

Greg said: “This is a huge day for clean heating. The combination of a high-temperature heat pump (as hot as a gas boiler), Octopus smart tariffs and room sensors across your home doesn’t just open up cheaper clean heating – but more comfort too.”
