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.
|LOW-CARBON GENERATION SUMMARY BY COMPANY||2018||2018|
|Supplier name||Low-carbon||GWh of low-carbon electricity generation||% of overall low-carbon electricity generation|
Using the latest available data would put EDF Energy's % of low carbon generation at 35%, with Other at 39%. The 39% of Other can itself be broken down into many different owners, the top ten by share of the Other owners and their percentage share of that 39% is below:
|DONG Energy RB (UK) Ltd||5.90%|
|Vattenfall Wind Power Ltd||3.36%|
|Morecambe Wind Limited||2.91%|
|Fred Olsen Renewables Ltd||2.59%|
|Walney (UK) Offshore Windfarms Ltd||2.59%|
|Clyde Windfarm (Scotland) Limited||2.44%|
|Galloper Wind Farm Limited||2.42%|
|Octopus Investments Limited||2.37%|
|Foresight Group LLP||1.97%|
|Falck Renewables Ltd||1.86%|
DONG Energy alone accounted for 2.3% of all low-carbon generation in 2018 (38% x 5.9%), with Vattenfall a further 1.3%, and Fred Olsen 1.0%. Removing DONG, Vattenfall and Fred Olsen would leave Other at 34.4%, which itself is still made up of many smaller, independent generators with split ownership. It is therefore the case that EDF Energy was the single largest generator of low-carbon electricity in 2018.
Your GoElectric electricity is powered by 100% 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.
EDF Energy is also the UK’s largest producer of low-carbon energy. And we're part of EDF Group, one of the largest generators of renewable electricity in Europe. For more information please visit edfenergy.com/generation-electric
