Today we’re proud to announce the launch of our new brand, SSE Energy Solutions, including green electricity for all new fixed energy plans.
At SSE, it’s our mission to make traceable green electricity available to all businesses in the UK. That’s why from now on, all our new fixed-price energy contracts will include 100% renewable electricity.
Our renewable electricity is generated by SSE Renewables, our sister company in the SSE Group – clean, green power from our 42 UK wind farms and 52 hydro power stations.1
And it’s backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) with independent verification by EcoAct, an Atos company, so it’s easy to report zero carbon emissions for electricity.
As the UK and Ireland’s largest renewable electricity generator, SSE is investing £7.5bn in the green transition by 2025. We have a further 8GW of new offshore wind, onshore wind and hydro projects in the pipeline – enough electricity for 1.5 million businesses.
“We're hearing loud and clear from our customers that they want to go green,” said Managing Director of SSE’s customer business, Nikki Flanders, “and so we’ve made the move to power all new fixed contracts with 100% renewable electricity from our UK wind farms and hydro plants.
“We see it as our job to make traceable green energy accessible to all organisations across the UK, including the 5.6 million small and medium-sized businesses. For the UK to meet its net zero targets, it’s important all businesses are able to adopt traceable renewable energy, and this move makes it easy for them to do so.”
SSE Energy Solutions is much more than just renewable energy. By combining our Business Energy and Distributed Energy divisions, we can bring you the scalable energy solutions you need to power your business more sustainably as we transition to net zero.
“Now, with our single SSE Energy Solutions brand, we’re also helping those customers go further by harnessing technology to get the most from their green energy, whether it’s through electric vehicle charging points or smart systems to manage their energy use,” Nikki Flanders said.
Adopting a “whole system” approach, SSE Energy Solutions invests in, builds, and uses innovative digital tools to connect localised flexible energy infrastructure to drive long-term performance of your energy assets, opening up opportunities to generate revenue.
“SSE is proud to be a principal partner for November’s COP26 climate change summit in Glasgow, and our green energy initiatives and single SSE Energy Solutions brand are just two examples of how we’re putting our words into action to make it easier for companies to hit their environmental goals,” Nikki added.
1. 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 renewable electricity, 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.
