Shell Energy supplies fully renewable electricity

Shell has rebranded First Utility as Shell Energy and switched all of its British residential customers to 100 per cent renewable electricity.

The purchase of First Utility, made in February 2018, has added to the general movement of the oil companies to become more diverse energy suppliers. Shell has now said that it will offer all existing and new customers fully renewable energy as standard.

Mark Gainsborough, executive vice president Shell New Energies, said: “This is a good example of our approach to building a significant electricity business, in line with customer needs. Shell recognises the world needs more energy with lower emissions and this will give customers more flexibility, greater control and cleaner energy.”

All of Shell Energy will come from renewable and be certified by the Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs), which guarantee that for every unit of electricity our customers use, a unit of renewable electricity is put into the grid by renewable generators in the UK.
