In 2016, GE launched a new Green Gas product, made up of at least 6% British biomethane with carbon emissions from from its use by customers balanced through carbon-saving projects that support local communities in Malawi, Vietnam and Nepal.
But Good Energy is about more that generating and supplying green energy. GE have always worked to have a positive impact in everything they do. From the purchasing of the office supplies used in day-to-day work, to award-winning customer service, to investment in the local communities around generation sites: Good Energy want to show how business can be a force for good.
