The Body Shop switch to Energia

December 09

The Body Shop’s Irish stores are set to be supplied with “green” power from competitive energy provider Energia.

The new deal sees Energia supplying 336,000 kilowatt hours (Kwhs) of renewable electricity sourced from its Irish windfarms to power The Body Shop’s Irish stores in Athlone, Galway, Sligo, Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Newbridge, Belfast & Foyleside

Commenting on the deal, Suzanne Keane from The Body Shop said: “Being a green retailer, we are delighted to be using Energia as our new energy supplier. Especially with The Body Shop policy being
 ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ “'

Mark Dignam, Key Account Manager, Energia commented: “The Body Shop is among the huge number of Irish organizations in the public and private sector choosing Energia as their supplier of “green” electricity. We are one of the leading providers of renewable energy to Irish businesses, having consistently grown the size of our renewable portfolio in response to the massive increase in demand for “green” power.

“In the 10 years that Energia has been operating in the Irish energy market we have consistently increased the competitiveness of the market by introducing innovative new products and packages. Whether its dual-fuel gas and electricity deals, “green energy” deals or supplying unmetered electricity to public sector bodies in Ireland, it is easy for Irish businesses to benefit from competitive energy deals with Energia.”

Energia is one of the most significant contributors to the achievement of Ireland’s renewable targets on an all-island basis. By 2012, Energia plans to be the largest independent renewable off-taker on the island of Ireland with 740MW, around 25% of the Irish renewable market. It currently has long term Power Procurement Agreements (PPAs) in place with 255MW of operating wind farms and other renewables, with a further 485MW scheduled to be operational by 2012.

Energia is Ireland’s leading independent energy supply company with a 25% market share of the business electricity market on an all–island basis with over 65,000 customers. The company also supplies 30% of all gas consumed in Ireland by the country’s business gas users.  In addition to renewable assets, the company also operates a 750MW gas fired generating station in north Dublin.
