Tim Szakacs, co-founder and chief executive, Orbit Energy, said: “Adding Shell Energy Europe as our strategic trading partner allows us to provide stable prices and peace of mind to our customers from day one.
“This partnership is a critical milestone, one that will support sustainable growth through continuity of supply for all Orbit Energy customers.”
Michael Siddique, manager, structured energy transactions for Shell Energy Europe, said: “Orbit Energy represents an exciting new opportunity for Shell Energy Europe as it demonstrates our ongoing commitment to partner with experienced management teams with proven success in energy supply markets.”
