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||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 was the single largest generator of low-carbon electricity in 2018.
