Renewable Electricity

for businesses in Ireland

The way we supply renewable electricity to your business offers you value and flexibility.

Flogas Enterprise was Ireland’s first supplier of 100% green electricity to business customers in 2013

Tailored approaches to suit your business needs

We supply renewable electricity to all our customers through either our standard renewable electricity package, or through a Corporate Power Purchasing Agreement (CPPA).

A CPPA is a contractual arrangement for large energy users to procure energy directly from a renewable power facility such as a wind farm, solar farm, or anaerobic digestion facility. They can range in length of term from 1 year to 15 years.

To support the development of a new build wind farm, corporates must commit to buy the wind/solar energy for a long term typically 10+ years.

All our electricity is certified 100% renewable.

*Flogas Enterprise is issued Guarantees of Origin (GoOs) for every megawatt hour (MWh) of generation that we have sourced from renewable electricity generators to meet our customers consumption requirements. These GoOs are used to calculate our fuel mix disclosure.

Each year, suppliers submit a completed fuel mix declaration to the Single Electricity Market Operator (SEMO), which it then uses to carry out and verify the fuel mix disclosure (FMD) calculations. These figures are published annually by the CRU.

In addition to its certification as a supplier of 100% green electricity to businesses in Ireland, Flogas Enterprise was the first company to provide ‘green gas’ (Biomethane) in Ireland to our customer, Tesco. Read what the Commission for Regulation of Utilities has to say about our electricity.

We believe in getting to know and understand your business.

We carry out a full energy audit of your business which can result in clear recommendations for you to reduce your bills, reduce your impact on the environment and improve the way you do business.

“Ballygowan, Ireland’s iconic water brand, has a long history of harnessing the best of Ireland’s natural resources to deliver sustainable, locally produced, Irish natural mineral water. This new Corporate Power Purchase Agreement with Flogas Enterprise, valued at €2.5 million, will produce renewable electricity for our production facility in Newcastle West and is a significant investment in our long-term strategy to ensure 100% sustainability across Britvic Ireland’s business operations.”

Sian Young, Director of Sustainable Business, Britvic Ireland

“Our mission is to become carbon neutral by 2030 and this is an important step in cutting our carbon emissions. It will enable our business to become more sustainable and provide us with a long-term solution to our requirements. It also reflects our values and desire to do our part in the community to lead the way in responding to climate change. We are replacing our existing energy sources with sustainable, more environmentally friendly alternatives with the focus on a sole use of electricity from renewable energy sources.”

Paul Reilly, CEO, United Drug

“We are functioning in a time when large energy users have limited hedging options. In a volatile energy market, having a fixed price for the supply of electricity through a CPPA is not only good for the environment, but it is also great for budgeting. This solution was hedged at a price that is reflective of current market price level, but delivers budget certainty and sustainability benefits.”

John Rowland, Operations Director, Wavin Ireland

“Our partnership with Flogas Enterprise is a critical component of our ongoing cost efficiency strategy and will enable us to significantly reduce operating costs by shifting to natural gas as our main fuel source. It comes at an exciting time for our business on foot of our recent completion of a €15.7m capital investment programme, which has allowed us to achieve substantial gains in efficiencies and a significant increase our competitiveness. Not only does the deal provide our business with significant cost benefits through direct access to wholesale energy prices, but we are partnering with a company that has demonstrated a deep understanding and expertise of Ireland’s energy market.”

“Our investments in renewable energy not only help to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from our operations in Ireland, but also, together with our energy efficiency efforts, help to control our electricity costs so we can pass any benefits to our customers by continuing to offer high quality home furnishings at low prices. Companies, individuals or governments – we all have responsibility to address the resource dilemma and commit to a more sustainable future. Producing our own, affordable, renewable electricity gets us one step closer to becoming completely energy independent by 2020, while ensuring our commercial success”
