Our fuel mix

We want to revolutionise the way businesses use energy in the UK and reduce the negative effects of climate change


Our fuel mix is 90% renewable, compared to the UK average of 40%. We have invested over £10 billion constructing new offshore wind farms in the UK and by the end of 2021, we will have invested over £13 billion.

A fuel mix is the ratio of different fuels or energy sources used to generate the electricity supplied, including electricity from the wholesale market.

The table below shows our fuel mix, along with the UK average, for the period from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.
