Going Green Made Easy

Less than a year after founding, Ostrom has already leapt into the top 25% of energy providers in Germany. Offering a fully digital and customer-centric experience as a modern electricity supplier, the startup certainly feels less weighty than traditional energy conglomerates that lock customers into long-term contracts with tariffs that are hard to understand.

Ostrom is now ready to expand into the rest of Europe.
