About ESP Utilities Group

With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, ESP Utilities Group is one of the UK’s largest and longest-established independent multi-utility companies.

We provide water and wastewater, electricity and gas services to over one million residential, industrial and commercial customers – connecting you to life’s essentials.

As leaders of the electric vehicle (EV) revolution, we’re rapidly linking EV infrastructure to the grid – speeding the way to a greener future.

We create the infrastructure that helps the UK thrive and prosper by adopting new networks from accredited providers – providing support, technical guidance and investment – while ensuring safety and quality.

As the network owner and operator, we are responsible for maintaining the network, and repairing any faults that interrupt supplies as quickly and safely as possible.

With our customers at the heart of our culture, we are committed to developing and delivering the best possible service.

The Utilities sector is going through enormous change as we rise to the challenge of achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050. We are committed to operating in a safe and compliant way that minimises our environmental impact, and supports the transition to greener energy.


We strive to create the best experience for our customers, partners and employees. We believe our strength lies in respecting the differences of our people, and encouraging and using those differences for the good of everyone.

We value diversity, and provide an open and transparent environment where everyone is comfortable sharing ideas. We recognise the differing needs of our people and embed policies that support a flexible and varied workforce.


We believe in engaging with the communities we work within and are proud to support the charitable work of the Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF) and the National Energy Foundation (NEF).
