Why it's important my supplier is 100% renewable

We believe that energy should be 100% clean. It’s something we will fight for. Honestly, fossils fuels are so last century.

If you’re passionate about doing right by the planet then you should fight for renewables in your own way, big or small. Your choice of energy supplier can be a big part of that. We believe that it’s important to go for not just a 100% clean tariff, but also a 100% clean supplier.

Think about it this way; if you get a 100% clean tariff from a supplier who has some tariffs that aren’t 100% clean then your hard earned money is helping that business grow. So, your money is actually contributing towards dirty energy. The supplier that you are with will grow in size and supply more people with environmentally unfriendly tariffs due to the profits they make from you. We think, in our totally unbiased way, that it’s just better to contribute to a 100% renewable supplier.

This is why the chart on Our Tariff page compares 100% renewable suppliers, not just 100% renewable tariffs. We’ve pulled together another chart showing you which suppliers are 100% renewable.

So, which suppliers are 100% renewable?
How does your supplier stack up? This chart shows the proportions of each suppliers fuel mix that were renewable and non renewable from April 2014 to Mar 2015

Do you think it’s important too?
So what do you think? Is it important to you that your supplier is 100% renewable too?

I want to like this twice - for years I have been telling people that a 100% tariff is not enough, the electricity supplier has to be 100%.

Thank you :slight_smile:

Thanks @IanMc, it looks like the tables are now being hosted on https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fuel-mix-disclosure-data-table.

The table is out of date. Please post a new one for 2016-17

We’re actually working on a new live chart to sit on our homepage that will show the fuel mixes of every supplier without us having to come back and keep threads like these up to date.

Here’s the table showing each suppliers fuelmix from electricityinfo.org http://electricityinfo.org/fuel-mix-of-uk-domestic-electricity-suppliers/

This is still 2016 info. From 2017 Green Energy UK claim they provide 100% green gas as well as electricity https://www.greenenergyuk.com/OurEnergy

The 2016-2017 % fuel mix can be found via the link on https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fuel-mix-disclosure-data-table. If you follow the link to the document, you’ll find the data in this PDF: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/641983/Fuelmixdisclosurewebpage2017.pdf

Each energy company only publishes their fuel mix once a year in April. The 2016 figures were published in April 2017, and this year’s figures will be published in April 2018. I’m afraid there isn’t any other official data about the fuel mix of energy suppliers outside of that. Ellie is right though, you can find the UK’s fuel mix at the link she shared.
