Fuel Mix Data

Why won't you display the individual breakdown of the Gas fuel mix? Electricity your were more than happy to display the individual sources of your renewable and same for gas. I'd like to know the remaining 90% of gas is it all Nuclear? is it all Coal? is it 50/50? are there other sources? Many other companies including big 6 show this information. It concerns me greatly that this isn't easily accessible or even available for potential customers.

    I'm confused, and it seems so are you. There's no such thing as nuclear gas, and coal gas hasn't been generated in many years.

    The gas used in the UK is "natural gas" (primarily consisting of methane) from the North Sea.

    The answer to your question is 10% "green" biogas, and 90% natural gas from the North Sea. I guess this isn't stated explicitly in terms of the 90% because it's generally common knowledge that natural gas comes from the North Sea.
  • Bulb actually have a page about their fuel mix at https://bulb.co.uk/fuelmix/ (found from 'About Bulb->Our Energy') which gives a more detailed breakdown about the gas details.

    Thanks! I was looking for that but just couldn't find it.

    Even that page doesn't describe what "conventional" gas means. Hopefully my post above is sufficient for the OP.
