We are Germany’s first fully digital energy provider. We leverage cutting edge technology alongside a positive and compelling brand voice to bring a much-needed breath of fresh air to the energy market. We founded 4hundred in 2017 to bring simple, transparent and fair prices to all German households. And in it all, we strive to inject delight no matter what context.

We have made it our mission to deliver the benefits of the latest technologies to our customers in a beautifully designed easy-to-use interface that makes energy simple and fun.
