Our Fuel Mix Disclosure 2019/2020
We’re proud to announce that our 2019/2020 Fuel Mix is reported as zero carbon and 100% renewable, compared to the UK average of only 37.9% renewable.
Our Fuel Mix explained
Our fuel mix is the ratio of different energy sources used to generate the electricity supplied to our customers. All UK electricity suppliers must detail their fuel mix on an annual basis to their customers. This should also include the associated carbon content so that customers can accurately measure their associated carbon emissions.
The table below shows our fuel mix alongside the UK average, from April 2019 to March 2020.
How it works
Like the weather, our fuel mix changes slightly each year. But you can always be sure that the electricity we supply to customers each year is matched with zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity. Sourced solely from our Wind, Hydro and Solar supplies, there’s no Coal, Gas, Nuclear or Biomass in our mix.
Why only Wind, Hydro and Solar?
As shown on the diagram below, some zero carbon-emitting energy sources have issues. Most Bioenergy requires combustion to generate electricity and is linked to an increased carbon production. Also, whilst Nuclear is zero carbon, the radioactive fuel source Uranium is finite, making this non-renewable. That's why our portfolio only includes wind, hydro and solar sources, as they are natural, renewable and zero carbon.
Report zero carbon, with confidence
Our supply products have been audited and verified by an independent third party, EcoAct. They have certified that our zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity supply is backed by guarantee of origin certificates. This allows all of our customers to report their electricity consumption (Scope 2) as zero carbon, under the Green House Gas (GHG) protocol market-based method.
