Key information about Beam Energy

Beam Energy was launched in January 2019 by London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council, in partnership with Robin Hood Energy.

The gas and electricity firm are a not-for-profit energy company which accepts customers located in Barking and Dagenham, greater London and East Anglia.

Beam Energy is a new supplier in the energy industry and hopes to help customers save money on their gas and electricity. The company says it supplies 100% renewable electricity from UK-based solar and wind generators.

Company history

Beam Energy was launched by Barking and Dagenham Council in partnership with Robin Hood Energy as its licensed energy supplier. The company offers low cost gas and electricity tariffs to all residents of London and the Eastern region.

The firm’s primary goal is to ensure people are able to ‘heat their homes without struggling to pay the bills’. For more information on fuel poverty in the UK, check out our guide on the subject.

Beam Energy understands that energy costs and tariffs from the ‘Big Six’ are continually increasing each year. The provider says it isn’t here to make a profit, evidenced by not having any shareholders or paying bonuses. This allows Beam to keep their prices as competitive as realistically possible.

The supplier states that if you select their fixed rate tariff, you will receive a fair price on your gas and electricity each year. Beam will contact you each year to offer their best rates. Like most suppliers, Beam Energy believes in putting its customers first. They hope to do this through their ‘friendly and knowledgeable’ UK based customer service team, who will help you find the cheapest tariff that will meet your needs and resolve any problems you may encounter.

Beam Energy’s electricity is 100% renewable and is sourced from UK-based solar and wind generators. Helping customers reduce carbon emissions and move towards a cleaner future.
