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 into 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 29.4%. 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.
|ZERO-CARBON GENERATION SUMMARY BY COMPANY||2019||2019|
|Supplier name||zero-carbon||GWh of zero-carbon electricity generation||% of overall zero-carbon electricity generation|
|Fred Olsen Renewables||zero-carbon||1,130||0.8%|

EDF home and small business customers get energy tariffs backed by zero carbon electricity as standard; tariffs backed annually. All our residential and small business tariffs are backed by 100% zero carbon nuclear electricity, with the exception of our EV tariff which is backed with 100% zero-carbon renewable electricity. Electricity for our GoElectric tariff comes from renewable sources like wind, solar, biomass, tidal and hydroelectric. At the end of each fuel mix reporting year we’ll make sure we’ve purchased enough renewable electricity from EDF owned, renewable generation to match the total volume of electricity supplied to all of our customers on the GoElectric tariff. A fuel mix reporting year begins on 1 April and ends on 31 March the following year. UK Fuel Mix disclosure information, published by the Government (BEIS) recognises electricity from wind, solar and nuclear fuel produces zero carbon dioxide emissions at the point of generation.
