As UK businesses face the challenge of managing the environmental impact of their operations, Danny Parr, Head of Business Energy UK at ScottishPower, explains how the company is supporting businesses to achieve their green ambitions.
Why is it important that businesses find greener ways to operate?
“The climate crisis is one of the most important issues of our time and we all need to do our bit to help the UK reach net zero by 2050. In addition, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. It’s caused sudden and dramatic changes to our way of life and every industry has felt the effects.
“As we take the first steps to emerge from the pandemic, we need to start planning – and the need for a greener energy future has never been more apparent. By taking the right approach now, the UK can unlock significant economic benefits.”
How can ScottishPower help businesses improve their green credentials?
“As the UK’s leading wind developer, we can support businesses to achieve their green ambitions now, and for years to come. Our flexible, sustainable solutions can be tailored to suit the different needs of our customers.
“With our expertise in identifying, developing and operating renewable energy assets, we can help power businesses with renewable energy. Our 100% REGO backed, UK based green energy product can help customers achieve their sustainability ambitions through their supply contract. Furthermore, our Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) allow businesses to secure renewable energy output from a new site while fixing their energy costs for the duration of the contract.
“We can also help businesses make the switch to electric vehicles with our bespoke charging solutions.”
Why should businesses choose ScottishPower?
“Building a more sustainable future is important to us. It’s why we’re the first integrated energy company to generate 100 per cent green electricity. And it’s also why we invest millions in onshore and offshore windfarms. By choosing ScottishPower, businesses can demonstrate their strong commitment to helping build a greener energy future.
“Everything we offer – from our PPAs to our EV charging solutions – is designed to make it easy for businesses to embrace sustainable ways of operating and achieve their green targets.”
