Renewable energy utility Good Energy has said it wants to cater for the growing number of businesses seeking clean power.
Last year the utility put into place a new five-year strategy which aimed to see its customer base number 900,000 by the end of 2020, representing a five-fold increase on numbers in mid-June 2015.
But while this morning’s financial disclosure showed a 40% surge in customers mainly for its domestic supply business, chief executive Juliet Davenport said the firm was to target more commercial customers and explicitly mentioned businesses that formed part of the RE100.
The Climate Group’s RE100 list comprises large businesses which have committed to using 100% renewable power. Companies on the list include household names such as Coca-cola and IKEA, and meet the target through both self-generation and renewables tariffs offered by utilities such as Good Energy and OVO.
Davenport said the business sector would be a key focus for Good Energy this year and beyond, stating her belief that the company was in an “excellent position to support” organisations wanting to limit their carbon emissions for CSR or good will purposes.
