Whether you're already electric or looking to make the switch, we can help you lower your carbon footprint:
Calculation is based on:
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%|
Three and a half times more efficient is based on a heat pump efficiency of 3.48 vs a gas boiler of 93% or 0.93. 3.5 x 0.93 = 3.25, which is less than 3.48.
Estimates based on a gas-heated detached home.
Figures are based on fuel prices as of April 2019.
