Fuel Mix Disclosure Guide

Compare the mix of fuels energy companies use to supply electricity

In the United Kingdom, all energy suppliers are legally obligated to disclose to their customers their fuel mix. This is the mix of fuels (gas, coal, nuclear, etc.) used to produce the electricity they supply to their customers

In addition, consumers must be informed about the amount of carbon dioxide emitted via electricity generation and /or the quantity of nuclear waste produced.

Fuel Mix Disclosure format

The format of Fuel Mix Disclosure is set out in The Electricity (Fuel Mix Disclosure) Regulations 2005. It requires the information to be disclosed in tables as percentages, so it is easily understood by anyone accessing it.
