If you’re a Pure Planet Member, you’ve probably noticed some pretty big changes around here. And if you’re not, it’s probably time to make the switch to our cleaner, greener energy and find out what all the fuss is about.

That’s because this week we launched the brand new Pure Planet app. Exclusively available to our Members, the app is crammed full of new smart features to help you on your journey to Net Zero. Simply update the app in your app store to continue using it and to access the new features.

The launch marks the culmination of many months of hard work, not only to develop our family of smart energy services, but also to completely overhaul our brand. Don’t worry though, it’s the same great Pure Planet under there, we’ve just got a shinier, smarter exterior that makes managing your energy, and living sustainably, simpler.

Here’s some of the cool new things you can do in the Pure Planet app.

Take a closer look at how you’re using energy in your home

Hands up who takes time each month to decipher their energy bill and work out how much everything’s costing and what they’re saving, in terms of money and CO2? I know I certainly don’t.

But with Pure Planet’s new and improved energy usage graphs, it’s easier than ever to keep on top of the energy you’re using, how much it’s costing and compare it year-on-year and month-on-month. And you can see how much CO2 you’re saving too.

Power your home sustainably with real time data, along with tips and advice that show you how you can save money and the planet too.

Find out how much CO2 your car emits

With the UK banning the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 due to how much carbon they emit, we all know that this type of transport isn’t exactly great for the environment. But do you know how much CO2 your car’s emitting?

Simply add your car’s registration number, annual mileage and average usage and the app will tell you exactly that. Plus how much you could save if you swapped to an electric vehicle, which brings us nicely on to point four.

Get matched to your perfect electric vehicle

Interested in swapping to an electric vehicle but not sure where to start? The Pure Planet app, powered by bp's cutting edge technology, looks at what you’re driving now as well as your driving habits to match you with the perfect EV. Like Tinder, but for cars.

And when you’re ready to take things to the next level, you can book a test drive with our trusted partner and even subscribe to your first EV, all from the app.

Connect your EV and see how much it’s costing you to charge up at home

The Pure Planet app has been redesigned with drivers in mind. As a Member and EV driver, you’re already powering your life, at home and on the go, with 100% Green energy, and now you can take a closer look at the impact that’s having on your wallet and the planet.

Connect your EV to see your battery status, available miles and cost to charge all in one place. The app will also tell you;

  • How long it’ll take to fully charge
  • How much you’ve spent charging your EV, and how much it would have cost to buy the equivalent in petrol
  • How much CO2 you’re saving driving an EV
  • Estimates of how much it’ll cost to charge at home with Pure Planet.

Coming soon: Take steps towards Net Zero with helpful hints and tips

Bring your energy to life and see how your usage compares to that of your neighbours and the rest of the UK. The app will also suggest ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and show how much you’re saving each month.

The app will guide you on your journey to Net Zero with simple insights and actions personalised to you — because living sustainably shouldn’t be complicated.

You’ll need to update your app to the latest version to continue using it and to start exploring its new smart features.
