How electricity is generated: SmartestEnergy fuel mix 2013-14


SmartestEnergy buys much of its energy from independent generators. Much of its energy comes from renewables (47%) but it still sources from coal and gas.

Power purchase agreements

Founded in 2001 SmartestEnergy has signed a number of power purchase agreements with a variety of companies – from large blue chip organisations to small community owned projects. The majority of its energy comes from renewable sources – this has not changed over recent years.

The proportion of renewable energy in the mix has increased slightly to 47% while the amount of coal in the mix has reduced (albeit by just 3%). While the proportion of coal in the mix hasn’t fallen as much as it has for other energy suppliers such as Gazprom or Dual Energy, it has dropped. The proportion of gas in the fuel mix is almost unchanged but nuclear has increased by 2%. It means that the majority of SmartestEnergy’s electricity comes from low carbon sources.
