How electricity is generated: Dual Energy fuel mix 2013-14

Dual Energy, a relatively new electricity supplier, has reduced the proportion of gas used in its fuel mix and increased the proportion of coal.

Dual Energy aims to be a competitive alternative to the Big Six energy suppliers. The company was established in 2009 and despite its name suggesting otherwise, it currently supplies only electricity.

The last year or so has seen the proportion of gas in Dual Energy’s fuel mix drop to 26% for the year 2013–14. The proportion of coal, meanwhile, has increased to 34%. This is in contrast to other suppliers such as British Gas and Haven Power where the proportion of coal in the mix has fallen.

Renewable energy

As with the majority of other electricity suppliers the proportion of renewable energy in the fuel mix has increased which is in line. Dual Energy’s green energy now mirrors the national average of 17% while the amount of nuclear in its mix has remained the same – 21%.

"After Scottish Power changed our business rates half way through the contract we were in set up by Switch My Business, we spoke to Natalja and she helped us sort this issue. Unfortunately, Scottish Power wouldn't play ball and were not agreeing to let us out the contract. Natalja worked extremely hard to sort this out for us and even put a claim in with them for the out of contract rates they put us on as one advisor at Scottish Power said they would refund the difference then another said they would not, along with plenty of other issues and broken promises along the way. It was a long and pretty painful process but Natalja did not give up and we have won the claim against Scottish Power. Very happy with the service Natalja provided."
