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.

"Aaron Gallagher recently helped me switch the gas and electricity supply for our business. He was extremely helpful and well informed which was great for me as I know nothing in this area! He saved us a small fortune and dealt with all of the switch for us which again was extremely helpful as it wasn't completely straightforward. Thanks again for you help Aaron, it was so appreciated."

A better deal for our Village Hall

"I recently used this company to get a better energy deal for our local village hall. Other companies were quite pushy but Lorraine and Bhavni from SwitchMyBusiness were much more professional. They sent me useful information by email enabling me and the village hall committee to make a decision about which supplier to use. The switch was done by phone and when the energy provider sent the paper work to the wrong address Bhavni sorted it out straight away. I saved over £1000 for the charity."
