Wind farms have become much larger recently, with an increasingly big impact on the surroundings. With the idea 'Everybody in the surroundings benefits', Eneco UK has introduced a local energy tariff for the people living near our wind farms. Zoïsa Walton, Country Director of Eneco UK, tells us about the & of this special energy tariff.
Eneco Group, one of the frontrunners in renewable energy production and retail in Europe, has today announced that its target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions has been approved by the experts at the Science Based Targets initiative. “Eneco’s ‘science-based target’ provides a clearly defined pathway that specifies how much and how quickly the company needs to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.”
Wouldn’t it be great if we could all generate our own sustainable energy? Well, that’s no longer a vision of the future. It is happening right now, and more and more people are joining in. They are deciding how they generate, use, sell and share energy with others. Together with customers and partners, Eneco Group is looking for energy solutions that make it possible to live and work in a smarter way.
These aren’t times for going it alone. Nor a time for ifs. Or buts. People and businesses are taking things into their own hands. Deciding for themselves where and how to generate sustainable energy. How they’ll use, store and share it. This is the age of &.

Achieving the climate targets set in Paris, by keeping the earth’s warming well below two degrees is a huge challenge. Since humans created this situation, presumably we should be able to get ourselves out of it too - although it’s clear that solutions won’t just happen on their own and that business has a major role to play.
That’s why ...

With Oxxio, we have consciously opted for a new generation of energy customers: the millennials. The people born between roughly 1980 and 2000 are different to the generation before them. They are a self-aware but also a difficult target group for existing energy suppliers. They do business in a very different way to their parents. Binding these millennials to Oxxio is a fa ...
Every year, we generate more than 1 Gigawatt (1,000 Megawatts) of sustainable energy. With onshore and offshore wind farms, with our biomass plant and with solar farms in the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK and France. This is enough sustainable energy for around 850,000 households. Eneco Group is leading the way with investments in large-scale generation capacity. These sustainable projects are all contributing:
