What do we mean by Fuel Mix?

A supplier’s fuel mix shows the sources of the electricity that it supplies to its customers e.g. coal, gas, nuclear and renewables.

Over the course of a year, energy suppliers must purchase sufficient electricity to feed into the national electricity grid to cover the amount their customers consume. At the end of each year, suppliers must disclose their fuel mix to the electricity and gas regulator, Ofgem. This information is published annually to help consumers make informed choices about their electricity supplier.
