Fuel mix disclosure
Customers expect us to be straightforward about where our sustainable energy comes from. We are completely transparent about this, and list the details on our fuel mix disclosure. This label specifies the sources of the power we supply. The information on our label is verified by the Dutch government via the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM).
Energy that is generated by sustainable means is issued a Guarantee of Origin (GoO). Each MWh of green electricity equals one GoO certificate. Since 2011, we have supplied 100% green electricity to all our private and SME clients.
A share of the electricity supplied to our corporate clients still comes from non-sustainable sources. Some of this ‘grey electricity’ is generated by our gas-fired power stations and heat & power stations, and some of it is sourced from third-party suppliers. We use a so-called import mix for this third-party electricity that indicates where it is sourced from. Unfortunately, we cannot entirely exclude electricity from coal-fired plants and nuclear power stations from this share of our supply.
