Targeting renewable energy to business customers in UK

Vattenfall will start to sell renewable power for the first time to British consumers. The green power product will help business customers with high demand to reduce their carbon footprint. The drive for business-to-business customers (B2B) will start in early May.

Anna Borg, Vattenfall’s new Head of Business Area Markets, said: “Vattenfall is offering a new green power product to large UK electricity users. This is the first time that Vattenfall is making a B2B supply offering in the UK. We are able to do this because of our investment in British wind capacity since 2008. Our renewable electricity product will help our future business customers achieve their sustainability goals.”

Vattenfall started to invest significantly in the UK energy industry in 2008 after buying three wind businesses. From a 90MW start in 2008, Vattenfall has invested nearly GBP 3bn in the UK and will, from 2018, operate over 1 gigawatt (GW) of installed wind capacity, meeting the equivalent annual demand of over 650,000 UK households*.

Vattenfall’s new green energy product is called FRESH: Flexible, Renewable Electricity, Supplied Honestly. For more information go to: business.vattenfall.co.uk

*Based on an average annual UK household consumption of 4,000 kWh.
