Eversmart CEO shortlisted for NatWest business award

business awards

Barney Cook, the CEO of Eversmart Energy, has been shortlisted for the 2018 NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the Start-Up Entrepreneur of the Year category.

NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards

Now in its sixth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards celebrates achievements in business across a wide range of categories. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane OBE of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt of BrewDog and most recently, Hannah and Sophie Pycroft of Spectrum Collections.

Challenging the ‘big six’

Barney founded Eversmart Energy in 2016, when new regulations opened up the market for new energy suppliers to come in and challenge the dominant ‘big six’ energy companies. Eversmart aims to be modern, tech-savvy, transparent and fair.

The Manchester-based company has seen a rapid surge in growth during its short lifespan, tempting frustrated consumers away from the big six by offering better value and a more modern service.

Entrepreneurship is still alive and well

Creator of the Awards, Francesca James, said: “We have been inundated with some incredible entries this year, and all shortlisted applicants should be extremely proud of themselves! This year has yet again seen a record number of entrants and we’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”

The figures are in – Eversmart are up to £400 cheaper than the competition!

energy savings

Big news from Eversmart HQ this week. According to the latest data from price comparison websites, switching to Eversmart Energy can knock up to £400 off your annual energy bill!

As every one of the ‘Big 6’ suppliers announced price increases earlier this year*, record numbers of people have been switching to independent providers like Eversmart, eager to find a better deal. With the help of the internet and price comparison sites, consumers are becoming savvier and more willing than ever to step away from the big suppliers.

According to the press, taking a chance on a smaller, modern energy company can have big rewards – just take a look at the table below, published by This Is Money earlier this month:

Positive News

Eversmart Energy CEO Barney Cook was thrilled when he heard the news.

“The big 6 have been taking their customers for granted for far too long. Consumers are finally waking up and realising that their loyalty isn’t being rewarded, and we’re happy to step in and offer a better alternative. The news that we are £400 cheaper than some suppliers just goes to show that it pays to shop around and make the switch. We’re proud to be one of the best value energy providers in the country.”

Is it time for you to switch?

A typical household paying for dual-fuel on a standard variable tariff with one of the big 6 suppliers could save up to £400 per year by switching over to Eversmart.
