Buying Green Electricity

Utility Professionals Limited are committed to helping your business secure a supply contract which includes  electricity generated from renewable resources.
   How could your business benefit?
   Buying  green energy can help you to:

  • Reduce the amount of Climate Change Levy (CCL) tax your  organisation has to pay
  • Show your commitment to the environment and enhance your brand  image
  • Build relationships with customers who share the same values as  you

Electricity  generation produces around 30% of the UK's CO2 emissions and more  green energy is seen as key to reducing the climate change impact of this  sector.
   Organisations  looking to demonstrate their contribution to action against climate change  through the purchase of green power may, however, find the process something of  a maze.
   We  can assist you to navigate through the network of green options and ensure that  you are achieving just what you need to meet your organisation’s corporate  responsibility targets.
   For  starters, we have outlined some of the key technologies below and how they  might impact your carbon footprint:

  • Carbon Free
  • Low Carbon
  • Carbon Offset

Carbon Free
Carbon  free energy relates to electricity that has been generated without producing  any emissions whatsoever.
Technologies  would include the traditional renewable forms of generation such as wind, wave  & tidal, solar and small scale hydro.
Power generated from any of these sources would be likely to incur a significant premium over standard brown energy but would be completely exempt from the Climate Change Levy (CCL).

Low Carbon
Low  carbon energy relates to electricity that falls outside of the traditional  renewable sources, but that has been generated with lower emissions than the  standard output of brown energy sources.
Technologies  would include Good Quality CHP, biomass, large scale hydro and, perhaps  controversially, nuclear.
Power  generated from these sources would be likely to be broadly cost neutral against  standard brown energy.
Good Quality CHP and biomass sourced power will incur exemption from CCL, however,  power from either large scale hydro or nuclear sources will incur CCL at full  cost.

Carbon Offset
   Supply  of green energy is limited and can be expensive.
   Dependent  on your organisation's sustainability policy, it may be beneficial to look at  carbon offset options as an alternative to purchasing either carbon free or low  carbon electricity.
   Carbon  offset looks to mitigate the emissions generated through the development of  alternative projects – schemes may include reforestation for example – and  represent a different way of managing your organisation's carbon footprint.
