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.
