UK Fuel Mix disclosure information, published by Government Department DESNZ, recognises electricity from wind, solar and nuclear fuel produces zero carbon dioxide emissions at the point of generation.
The zero-carbon electricity purchased is supplied to the National Grid. Customers receive electricity via the National Grid, not directly from zero-carbon generators.
The below table summarises zero-carbon generation by company demonstrating EDF generating 19.8%. The data supporting the table below and the % values is sourced from a mixture of industry settlement data and the UK government renewable obligation database.
|Company||Onshore wind / offshore wind / solar / biomass / hydro TWh 2022||% of total zero carbon generation|
Sources: UK figures from company reports; EDF analysis; total zero carbon generation for 2022 from DESNZ Energy Trends 5.1
Note: SSE figure is for financial year 2022/23. All EDF generation in UK is currently located in GB.
All our residential fixed energy tariffs are backed by 100% zero carbon nuclear electricity, with the exception of our EV tariff which is backed with renewables. See our product table for more information.
