Otovo's mission is to put solar panels and batteries in every European home, and by using software and technology we are able to make solar energy easy, cheap and available everywhere.

Founded in 2016, Otovo has rapidly scaled its platform beyond the Nordics, and it is currently operating in 10 countries: Norway, Sweden, France, Spain, Poland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Portugal and the United Kingdom.
