How electricity is generated: SSE fuel mix 2013-14


SSE’s electricity fuel mix is rapidly changing: only 44% is now generated by coal (down from 54%) and almost a quarter comes from renewables (up from 15%).

Increase in renewable energy

There has been an increase in renewable energy as a proportion of the fuel mix across the board over the last year and SSE is no exception. The amount of renewable energy in the mix has increased to 24% in 2013–14, up from 15% in 2012–13. This is much higher than the average national fuel mix of 17%.

Decline in fossil fuels

As with other business energy suppliers, including British Gas and Haven Power, the proportion of fossil fuels in the fuel mix has fallen.

Gas is seen as a low carbon form of energy generation so over 50% of SSE’s fuel mix is now low carbon – gas, nuclear and renewables.
