Energia remains among the greenest home electricity suppliers in the Republic of Ireland, achieving the 100% Green Energy award for the third year in a row.
17th October 2016: Energia remains among the greenest home electricity suppliers in the Republic of Ireland, achieving the 100% Green Energy award for the third year in a row.
The award is based on the Commission for Energy Regulation’s (CER) report on fuel-mix and Carbon Dioxide (CO2
) emissions for individual electricity suppliers licensed in Ireland. ‘Fuel-mix’ means the type of fuels or resources that suppliers use to make the electricity for their customers. The report found that Energia produced 100% Green Energy* in 2015, a similar result to 2014 and 2013.
100% of Energia’s fuel mix came from renewable resources in 2015. Energia Renewables is among Ireland's leading providers of sustainable green energy and 25% of Ireland’s wind power is provided through Energia to homes and businesses. Energia has invested over €300m in wind farms since 2008 and currently supplies over 800MWs of renewable energy. This will rise to over 1,000MWs by mid-2017 with over 200MWs of projects presently in development.
The report published by the CER outlines each supplier’s fuel mix figures and the CO2
per Megawatt Hour (MWh) of electricity supplied for each supplier.
Energia’s Head of Marketing Geoff Codd said
, “We’re delighted to receive this recognition of our green energy credentials for the third year in a row. As well as getting the best Dual Fuel home energy deal, it matters to people that the power they’re using is made as sustainably as possible. That approach is central to our business where, through our investments in renewable energy, we are one of the most significant contributors to the achievement of Ireland’s CO2
emission reduction targets.”
*100% Green Energy means zero tonnes of carbon dioxide were produced per Megawatt Hour (MwH) of energy generated. The full CER report is available here www.cer.ie
