VW Group UK partners with Ecotricity to offer green energy supply

Article by Anita Panait, on October 11, 2013

Volkswagen Group (UK) Limited has inked a partnership agreement with green energy supplier Ecotricity to provide a 100-percent green energy offer to all customers acquiring an electric vehicle from one of the Group brands. The agreement started with initial discussions with several energy companies in January 2013.

It now envisages Ecotricity becoming the preferred supplier of green energy for Volkswagen Group customers in the United Kingdom. The agreement entails offering, at point of sale, any customer purchasing an EV from one of the VW Group’s brands an option to adopt Ecotricity’s 100 percent green tariff for their home and vehicle energy supplies.

Andrew Bannister, Head of Environmental Management for Volkswagen Group (UK), expressed delight on being able to offer EV customers the option to adopt a green energy package that allows them to power their units by 100 percent renewable energy. He remarked that among the green energy suppliers, Ecotricity emerged as the best choice for them and their customers.

Founded in 1995, Ecotricity is the world’s first ‘green electricity’ company.  With an aim to change the way electricity is made and used in the UK, Ecotricity now powers over 75,000 homes and businesses from its wind and sun parks. [source: Volkswagen
