Renewable Energy for Business

With net zero on the horizon, finding ways to reduce emissions is more important than ever. Perhaps the simplest way is to opt for carbon-free supply.

Our Business Renewable energy provides independently-verified sustainable power that’s also fully compliant for zero-carbon reporting. 


It works by matching the power your customer consumes with the equivalent volume of renewable power supplied to the grid. We evidence this by securing the corresponding number of Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) certificates, which are issued for each megawatt-hour (MWh) of renewable generation fed into the UK electricity system.

Benefits

  • A simple way to benefit from renewable power sources
  • Enables renewable credentials to be clearly demonstrated
  • Fully compliant with World Resource Institute GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance
  • EcoAct assurance stamp provides peace of mind that our product and processes are robust and compliant
  • Report zero-carbon emissions without any requirement for additional evidence
  • Available with any of our Fixed or Flexible purchasing contracts

Option for your customers to display an Energy Label at their sites as a visual demonstration of their commitment to sourcing renewable power.

ecoAct

The EcoAct assurance stamp gives you confidence that your supply is robustly backed by a sufficient amount of REGOs (from UK generation only) and can therefore be reported as zero-carbon-emission power.
