Renewable energy is not the same as clean energy.
Contrary to popular belief, renewable doesn’t necessarily
mean non-polluting, sustainable or carbon-neutral.
‘Renewable’ can be used to describe energy from ‘dirty’ sources including imported biomass – or even worse, combining REGOs with fossil fuel energy.
Businesses are often surprised to discover that their renewable energy contract doesn’t actually deliver clean energy. The only way to avoid greenwashing and guarantee clean energy is to choose wind, solar and hydro power.
At Squeaky, we only include 100% clean, traceable energy in our portfolio of contract options.
Smart businesses choose clean energy.
Get ahead in the UK’s energy transition
As part of the transition to net zero, the UK has committed to all its electricity coming from clean energy sources by 2035 to cut carbon emissions by 78%.
Currently, just 40.3% of the UK’s electricity comes from renewable sources. There’s a long way to go.
You can play a leadership role. Go beyond Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) to 100% clean energy to ensure that your energy supply chain can withstand full scrutiny - while continuing to meet ever tougher commercial objectives.

Squeaky’s energy is 100% clean. Our exclusive arrangements give our clients access to one of the UK’s largest portfolios of wind, solar and hydro generators.
Does clean energy cost more?
No! Renewable energy used to be more expensive, but the levelized cost of clean energy has been falling consistently for years and there’s now no commercial reason to not go green.
Indeed, businesses can avoid the current volatile energy market by choosing to secure supply of clean energy via a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA). The Squeaky team pioneered CPPAs back in 2008 and our Consortia CPPAs are enabling many more organisations to take advantage.
