Given that Gazprom UK is owned by one of the world’s major gas producers it might be expected that its fuel mix would be largely made up of gas. But the proportion of gas in the fuel mix has dropped to just 13%. In addition, the amount of coal in its fuel mix has also fallen from 45% to 22% (2013–14), a drop of around 50%.

Renewable energy

Interestingly, Gazprom has made a significant move away from fossil fuels to renewable energy and a low carbon form of energy generation. The proportion of renewable energy in Gazprom UK’s fuel mix has jumped from 22% to a massive 58% (2013–14). This huge change means that Gazprom is now one of the greener energy suppliers.

Take a look at the fuel mix of some of the other suppliers such as Opus Energy or Haven Power to see how they compare.

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
