The SSE Group is one of the largest integrated electricity and gas suppliers in the UK. Together with its other energy brands, Scottish Hydro, SWALEC, Atlantic, SSE and Airtricity, they serve over 10 million customer accounts across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

SSE is a FTSE 100 company. It is a full service energy provider with more than 50 years of experience in the generation, transmission, distribution and supply of energy.

SSE is independently recognised as one of the best energy suppliers for customer service and is the UK's leading generator of electricity from renewable resources.

SSE produces more green energy than any other energy company in the UK through wind and water and helps customers do the same through their micro generation energy tariffs and products.

Who owns SSE?

SSE is an energy company based in the United Kingdom and floats on the FTSE100 under the TIDM 'SSE' with a market capitalisation of £13.4billion.

The majority of SSE's profit comes from the company's 10.5 GW of power generation, unregulated electric and gas supply businesses, and its regulated networks business, which includes electric and gas distribution and transmission systems. The firm is also involved in smaller related businesses such as gas storage, home energy services, contracting, and oil and gas production.

Their domestic energy business, which like other big six energy suppliers, has struggled of late resulting in SSE selling this arm of the business to energy giant - Ovo Energy for a reported £500m.

Please note, the SSE name and accompanying logos are owned by, and registered trademarks of, SSE plc. They are licenced to SSE Energy Services, a retail business that was formerly part of the SSE Group, which became part of the OVO family in January 2020.
