Our fuel mix

Where does our energy come from?

At Bristol Energy we offer the greenest electricity we can, at the best price we can. And we're helping Bristol to tackle social and environmental challenges such as fuel poverty and climate change – so you can go green, and give back.

Overall our fuel mix for the period between April 2019 and March 2020 was 100% green.

The UK average is 37.9%, so we’re pretty proud of this. Despite being just over four years old, we’re already well above the national average. And we’ll stay green as we grow.

Fuel mix comparison graphs showing Bristol Energy's electricity fuel mix is from 100% renewable energy sources. The UK average fuel mix is made up of 3.9% Coal, 39.4% Natural Gas, 16.6% Nuclear, 37.9% Renewables and 2.2% Other fuels.

Radioactive waste?

Because 100% of our electricity comes from UK-based renewable sources, we don’t need to buy power from the National Grid, which means the amount of radioactive waste we produce has comes down to 0% too.
