Our fuel mix

wind turbines and solar panels

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 2018 and March 2019 was 79% green.

The UK average is 32.8%, so we’re pretty proud of this. Despite being just over three years old, we’re already well above the national average. And we’ll get greener as we grow, by supporting renewable generators.

Want to go even greener?

Switching your energy supplier to one which provides renewable energy is one of the easiest ways to tackle climate change.

With a growing mix of direct power purchase agreements; local renewable generators across wind, solar, hydro and bio, green energy certificates and lower carbon solutions we will commit to only offer fixed green tariffs which benefit the environment and our communities.

Find a fixed green tariff for your home.

And we have green tariffs for businesses too.

What is our environmental impact?

As we get greener, our carbon emissions will get lower too. But we are pleased to say these were also below the national average for the year 2018 to 2019.

Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Bristol Energy - 76 g/kWh

National Grid Average – 208 g/kWh

Radioactive waste?

As we buy more renewables direct from our generators, we’re able to buy less power from the National Grid, which means the amount of radioactive waste we produce comes down too.

High-Level Radioactive Waste

Bristol Energy - 0.00028 g/kWh

National Grid Average - 0.001309 g/kWh
