Helping your business go green on the road to net zero

The electric vehicle (EV) revolution has begun. A total of 108,205 new electric cars were registered in the UK in 2020, up 185% on the previous year.1 And with the UK ending sales of all new diesel and petrol cars and vans in 2030, EV sales are set to soar.

Transport accounts for around 23% of global energy-related CO2 emissions,2 and businesses own over half of all registered vehicles in the UK. So it’s crucial that companies lead the shift to electric.

As more and more of us switch to EVs, your business needs to get ready. Whether you’re after green electricity for operational EVs, workplace EV charging for your employees and visitors, on route charging, or complete EV infrastructure to electrify your fleet, we can help you on the road to net zero.

  3. All our fixed-price energy plans include 100% renewable electricity as standard. All our renewable electricity is sourced from wind and hydro assets wholly or partly owned by SSE Renewables, our sister company in the SSE Group. With SSE Green EV, you’ll continue to get your electricity through the national grid as normal, and we’ll match your consumption to REGOs from the SSE Group’s generating assets.
  4. If you don’t already have a smart or AMR meter and don’t have one installed at no additional cost, the price you pay could increase.
  5. Relevant SSE and third-party terms and conditions will apply to you and your employees who sign up for workplace charging.
