Our fuel mix

Our fuel mix is 100% renewable, compared to the UK average of 32.8%

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