Fuel Mix Information

Fuel Mix Information is a breakdown of how the electricity supplied to our households has been generated. It shows what percentage of each fuel source such as coal, natural gas, renewable and nuclear energy has been used.

It is now a requirement from energy regulator, Ofgem that all UK electricity suppliers tell their customers about the fuel sources they use. Below is a table showing the fuel mix information for all the electricity companies (last updated in August 2014).
