Bright, a new, technology-based energy supplier founded by well-known entrepreneurs Ciaran and Stephen Devine in partnership with Ireland’s largest family-owned forecourt retailer
Maxol, aims to disrupt the NI’s and Irish energy markets.

Using a unique software platform and a specially designed app, it will offer just one simple tariff and provide customers with affordable green electricity at a fair and transparent price. 

Bright has created 15 new jobs at its Belfast HQ where it will manage its island-wide operations and plans to double its workforce in the coming months.

Having completed a successful trial period, it will be launched in the Republic of Ireland at the end of June and will be rolled out across Northern Ireland in late summer

Bright’s technology driven and simplified approach will change how people manage and pay for their energy. Its customers will no longer spend time and money managing complex energy tariffs and bills, and unlike other suppliers, there are no tie ins or exit fees.

With backgrounds in project management and corporate finance, Ciaran and Stephen Devine also founded Evermore in 2010 to bring innovative solutions to energy markets across Ireland, the UK and beyond. 

“The electricity supply market in Northern Ireland is overly complicated and it doesn’t need to be” says Ciaran Devine, who co-founded bright alongside his brother Stephen.

Ciaran Devine, Co-Founder of Bright and Evermore Energy; Brian Donaldson, CEO of The Maxol Group, and Stephen Devine, Co-Founder of Bright and Evermore Energy.Bright’s beauty is in its simplicity. We are offering one simple variable rate tariff to everyone – that’s it. So, when prices fall, savings can be passed on to bright’s customers, the way it should be. 

The issue of climate change isn’t going away, and we know our customers want to play their part in that fight. But protecting the planet doesn’t always have to come at an additional cost and bright is living proof of that.

“The world is evolving faster than ever, and we want to be at the heart of that change, so bright’s technology platform isn’t just for the here and now. It is designed to help our customers save money and become more energy efficient as the technology in their homes evolves, and that’s something we’re really excited about.

“We’re also looking forward to bringing bright’s tech-driven, transparent approach to the gas supply market later this year. That will allow our customers to easily manage their gas and electricity using our app. So, they’ll no longer need to deal with different suppliers and dozens of confusing tariffs."
