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 to 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 32.4%. 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||2020||2020|
|Supplier name||zero-carbon||GWh of zero-carbon electricity generation||% of overall zero-carbon electricity generation|
|Fred Olsen Renewables||zero-carbon||1,100||0.9%|
All of our home energy tariffs are backed by zero-carbon electricity as standard and are backed annually. At the end of each fuel mix reporting year we’ll make sure we have enough nuclear generation declarations to match the total volume of electricity supplied to all of our customers on zero carbon nuclear backed tariffs.
EDF's EV tariffs are backed with 100% zero carbon renewable electricity. Electricity for EDF's GoElectric tariff comes from renewable sources like wind, solar, biomass, tidal and hydroelectric. At the end of each fuel mix reporting year, EDF will make sure they've purchased enough renewable electricity from EDF owned renewable generation to match the total volume of electricity supplied to all their 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. See EDF's tariff table for more information.
