Between 11pm last night and 3am this morning, no coal was burned to generate electricity in the UK. As far as we can tell, this is the first time this has happened!
We've been given permission to build 15MW of solar for three 'hybrid' energy parks Link
No other energy company in Britain does more to oppose fracking than we do.
We were the first supplier to publicly declare our opposition and to introduce a ‘frack-free gas’ promise – assuring our customers that we’ll never source any of our gas from shale, and that we’ll never invest in fracking.
This may seem pretty obvious for a green supplier, but some energy companies are deeply involved in fracking, and some are even funding it. That means opponents of fracking are often unknowingly supporting it through their gas bills.
We have a chance to put a stop to fracking in Britain – if customers boycott the companies who support fracking, they can show that people really don’t want their homes to be supplied with gas generated through fracking.
We work with anti-fracking groups around the country to support their campaigns in any way that we can.
And we’ve developed an alternative way to make gas in Britain – making green gas from grass. We’ve already submitted plans to build our first Green Gas Mills – and our analysis shows that Britain could make all the gas it needs this way. It’s a revolution in gas, and we don’t need to frack the countryside to get there – we just need to mow the grass.

We're the only energy company in the world that knows the carbon cost of delivering energy to our customers, because we're the only energy company in the world with EMAS accreditation.
