Why Wind Energy Is Best For The UK

by D-ENERGi
 
In the UK wind energy accounts for 24% of total electricity generation, according to data released by the ONS in 2020. Both onshore and offshore wind is used to generate electricity in this country, and as we currently stand, we are a world leader in generating wind energy. Thanks to the country’s geographical location and resources, wind energy has become a reliable solution for providing a renewable energy alternative for businesses and homes across the UK. Providing a carbon-free option for electricity. Onshore and offshore wind In the UK there are two different types of wind energy. Offshore and onshore. Both types provide enough power for businesses and homes across the nation. Onshore wind provides one of the most cost-effective choices for electricity in the UK. Being cheaper than all of its alternatives, such as coal, gas, nuclear, and any other renewable electricity source. A clean and carbon-free alternative energy source, this is growing increasingly popular with the British public and businesses alike. The term onshore wind simply refers to those turbines that are located on land, you will have likely driven past a few on journeys across the UK. Offshore wind refers to the energy generated by those wind farms located off the coast of the country. Typically found in the open sea, these are placed in locations where there are much higher wind speeds and can thereof generate more electricity than onshore wind turbines. Considered to be the most efficient means of generating wind energy, offshore wind in the UK is receiving huge amounts of investment, providing jobs to thousands and a clean, reliable and affordable energy source for the UK. Wind energy is something we are considered to be successful in as a country, with many other nations looking to us for inspiration. Environmental impacts of wind energy As wind energy is a carbon-free source of energy, it makes a huge contribution to the UK’s effort in reducing our carbon emissions. Helping the country to tackle climate change. Despite the varying opinions on wind energy and the development of wind farms across certain areas of the country, wind developments have far fewer impacts on the natural environment in comparison to other energy sources such as fossil fuels. Secondly, they can be easily replaced or removed quickly if necessary, making them a rather efficient means for generating energy. Although other organisations such as animal welfare charities and conservationists are concerned about the protection of wildlife, this can be continued to be protected with careful project management and planning when choosing the location for a wind farm to be placed. The future of wind energy in the UK According to the National Grid, the year 2020 can be considered the “greenest year on record” (according to the current, available data) for Britain with record-high levels of wind energy generation. Despite the year not being one to celebrate other major issues, such as the COVID-19 outbreak, this is certainly some good news to come out of the UK. We can use this information to set a precedent for years to come. As we continue to work towards a carbon-free world and tackle climate change, wind energy generation should increase as more and more companies adopt this energy source.

Over the last few years, the UK became one of the first countries in the world to set targets and pass laws in order to minimise and finally end the contribution this country has to global warming.  Across the UK, this has resulted in companies of all sizes considering taking key steps in order to reduce the environmental impact they are having. This has involved a number of companies making the switch to business electricity suppliers that are able to supply them with zero-carbon electricity. Here at D-ENGERGi, we are proud to offer 100% renewable energy to our business customers. For those who are considering making the switch, here are some of the key benefits of zero-carbon electricity for businesses to help you make your decision.  Reduce your business’ carbon footprint The initial and most important benefit of switching to zero-carbon electricity supplier sources is that you will reduce your company’s carbon footprint. With goals in place across the UK to achieve carbon neutrality over the next 15-25 years, there are plenty of steps businesses can take to ensure they are on the right track. This is one simple way in which you can begin placing importance on sustainability.  Build your customer base  For consumers, it has become more important than ever to buy from companies that are attempting to be eco-friendly and sustainable. Recent studies have shown that consumer attitudes towards sustainability is now having a direct impact on their buying decisions. With around 32% of consumers expressing a great concern around the environmental impact of their purchases and are therefore highly engaged in adopting a more sustainable lifestyle. This has resulted in around 28% of consumers having stopped buying certain products due to their ethical and environmental concerns.  Therefore, taking one step to reduce your company’s carbon emissions, by switching to renewable, carbon neutral electricity could help to build your customer base.

Types of CSR include ethical, environmental, and economic.

by D-ENERGi
 
If you are considering switching your current business electricity supplier, you may not be aware of the importance of understanding where your electricity is sourced from. This could play an important role in helping you make a decision when it comes to choosing a new business electricity supplier. Your business electricity supplier’s FMD will provide you with the details of where your electricity is sourced from. Understanding Fuel Mix Disclosure from Business Energy Suppliers   A Fuel Mix Disclosure or FMD, as it is often referred to within the industry, is the information electricity suppliers are obligated to provide within Great Britain. This discloses to customers the mix of fuels used to generate their electricity and the impact this has on the environment. These disclosures are released across an annual period by energy companies in the UK and are updated each year. Why is Fuel Mix Disclosure important?   As people begin to realise the true extent of their carbon footprint, the discussion around energy sources is going to continue for decades. With the UK government committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050, businesses, in particular, have an important role to play in the reduction of carbon emissions and switching from the use of non-renewable energy sources, like fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like wind and solar. Therefore, it is more important than ever that you understand the fuel mix disclosure provided by business electricity suppliers. With this information, you are armed with the relevant knowledge to make an informed decision when it comes to choosing a business electricity supplier. One which will help your business contribute to your own sustainability goals and helping achieve the government’s aims for reaching net zero emissions. The Average UK Fuel Mix   One way to review the information your energy supplier offers is to compare this with the average UK fuel mix. Allowing you to determine how they compare with other energy suppliers. For the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021, the UK standard fuel mix was reported as follows: Coal – 2.7% Natural Gas – 38.2% Nuclear – 16.1% Renewables – 40.3% Other – 2.7% 100% British UK Wind Energy From D-ENERGi   Choosing to go with our D-ENERGi Electricity Trading Product as your independent business energy supplier, you will be buying 100% British UK wind-sourced electricity.
