Our fuel mix

At Shell Energy, we believe everyone in Britain should be able to choose 100% renewable electricity for their home. That’s why it comes as standard on all our tariffs:

Average UK Fuel Mix

We like to think our renewable electricity is straightforward, especially when you compare it with the national average:

But where does our electricity come from?

All our electricity comes from renewable sources such as wind, solar and biomass. It’s certified by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs), which guarantees that for every unit of electricity used, a unit of renewable electricity is put into the grid by renewable generators in the UK. 

So as a Shell Energy customer, you can be confident that every unit of power you use in their home is matched to a unit of renewable power generated in the UK.

The end result? You can put your feet up knowing that your home energy that we provide is carbon neutral.
