SmartestEnergy is a B2B energy company empowering switched-on customers, generators and partners to get to net zero. We know the journey to 100% renewable energy is complex, because everyone’s at different stages with unique needs. That’s why our model is flexible, our advice is unbiased, and our innovative retail solutions are realistic. As a growing community, we can make the system fairer and more powerful. We want to provide opportunities for our communities and be champions of a greener, smarter energy for generations. Our partnership with HG+ is testament to our desire to support grassroots initiatives but also to expand our thinking about how our area of business impacts the built environment.

We won the RIBA Stirling Prize for Burntwood School in 2015 and in 2017, AHMM became majority owned by its employees through an Employee Ownership Trust. AHMM is a proud supporter of Home Grown Plus and its focus creating new opportunities to access architecture.
