We challenged a number of social media influencers to take an electric car out on the road. Watch as they debunk the myths around electric cars: How many times do you need to charge? How do electric cars feel to drive? Our latest episode takes Dr Alex George and Wes Nelson (both from Love Island) on a trip to EDF's Sizewell B nuclear site. See how they got on.

As the UK's largest generator of low-carbon electricity data below

The data supporting the table below and the % values are sourced from a mixture of industry settlement data and the UK government renewable obligation database.

LOW-CARBON GENERATION SUMMARY BY COMPANY 20182018
Supplier nameLow-carbonGWh of low-carbon electricity generation% of overall low-carbon electricity generation
EDF ENERGYLow-carbon45,51735%
CENTRICALow-carbon11,8209%

TOTALLow-carbon134,780100%

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 Ltd3.36%
Morecambe Wind Limited2.91%
Fred Olsen Renewables Ltd2.59%
Walney (UK) Offshore Windfarms Ltd2.59%
Clyde Windfarm (Scotland) Limited2.44%
Galloper Wind Farm Limited2.42%
Octopus Investments Limited2.37%
Foresight Group LLP1.97%
Falck Renewables Ltd1.86%

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.
