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.

"A lovely lady called Bhavni phoned me very quickly after I went online. She couldn't have been more helpful, explaining all the different rates for me. She managed to save me a huge amount per year - gave me her direct phone number if I needed to phone again - like gold-dust! even gave me a termination letter to send to my supplier. Couldn't have been easier and will definitely use again - and hope I get to speak to Bhavni again. Thanks again"

"I wanted to switch energy supplier as had been with current one for a number of years but prices had increased quite a lot. I dealt with an extremely helpful person called Bhavni Manek, she made this a very quick and easy experience and would use the company again if they are all as great as she was"
