Our Mission: to inform the consumer

Today, about half of people in France still don't know that they can use competition in energy supply to reduce their energy bills.*

Our team publishes detailed, objective, and timely information about energy on a daily basis. Our goal: to contribute to informing the customer about this complex and lively subject.

Our content allows us to gain visibility on the web, and spreads the message that French consumers can take advantage of competition for their energy supply.

The startup Selectra

2007 : foundation

Selectra was born in March 2007 when two Sciences Po students took the crazy risk to launch their own company (aged only 19 and 20 years old!). July 2007, the French energy market was opening to competition and it naturally caught their attention. In the meantime, they set up the original website (selectra.info). Their enthusiasm and resilience overcame any reservations their potential partners might have held about entrusting part of their commercial policy (business development strategy) to two young students with little professional experience.

Selectra in the world

Throughout Europe and the world, in all countries with energy markets open to competition: our business model works internationally. The key to our success? We recruit nationals of our target countries, and put them through an accelerated start-up incubation process. Selectra Madrid was our first experiment in taking our business model abroad, and today leads the Spanish market in energy comparison services. We also sell contracts in Italy and Belgium, where break-even was reached in 2015, as well as in Portugal, Austria, Turkey and Japan.

Selectra, experts on saving on all bills

No resting on our laurels here - since 2013 we've diversified into comparing internet and mobile phone offers, and saw impressive growth in both activities in 2014. Our goal is to reach the same level success in our new activities that we've achieved in our Energy branch. In July 2014 we acquired the website Echos du Net, a leading information portal in telecommunications news.

Our Team


Do you want to help us grow Selectra internationally? Whether it’s for commercial, web content, human resources, communication, or web development, our teams are growing every month as we expand and develop our activities.

At Selectra, merit and involvement are the most important factors in your professional development, in contrast to what might be the case in larger, traditional companies. We aim to keep our start-up spirit, with a relatively "flat" hierarchy and regular parties.
