Bristol Energy powers Bristol Zoological Society

10 October 2019

We're as happy as a pygmy hippo in mud to announce our latest local power partner - Bristol Zoological Society.

We're providing gas and 100% renewable electricity to all of the animal exhibits at Bristol Zoo Gardens, which include Twilight World, The Reptile House, Bug World, Monkey Jungle and Gorilla Island.

We will also supply the Zoo’s sister attraction Wild Place Project, in South Gloucestershire, which is home to gelada baboons, European brown bears, giraffes, zebras and cheetahs.

Bristol Zoological Society joins a host of other iconic Bristol locations and destinations that have joined Bristol Energy, including We The Curious, SS Great Britain and Bristol’s City Hall, who all share a passion for renewable energy and helping Bristol reach its target of being carbon neutral by 2030.

Bristol Zoo Gardens is the fifth oldest zoo in the world and champions conservation science research by working to protect species and habitats and encouraging sustainable behaviour. By switching their electricity away from fossil fuels and reducing their emissions, the charity is helping to prevent the disastrous effects of climate change.

We're pleased to be working with an energy company committed to working in the region towards sustainable energy - supporting reduction in local and regional consumption, as well as working to make renewable energy available as a standard rather than premium product.

We're planning on working closely together to help fulfil the Society’s green aspirations; looking at potential innovative energy solutions in the future to reduce their emissions further.

More and more Bristol businesses are signing up to Bristol Energy’s renewable energy in a bid to reduce their carbon emissions, invest in local green energy systems and help create a cleaner, greener, healthier city.

We’re excited to be working with another iconic Bristol organisation that is committed to helping Bristol become a cleaner, greener, healthier city. Switching to renewables is the easiest and most simple way of doing your bit. We’re looking forward to seeing how our organisations can collaborate to drive new approaches to sustainability in our city.
