UK Fuel Mix disclosure information, published by Government Department BEIS, 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 34.3%. 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.

|Supplier name||zero-carbon||GWh of zero-carbon electricity generation||% of overall zero-carbon electricity generation|
|Fred Olsen Renewables||zero-carbon||698||0.7%|
