Kodėl pirkti EKOenergiją?

Fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum are still the main input for the European electricity sector. As a result, electricity production (and consumption) leads to enormous greenhouse gas emissions.

The good news is that we know how to replace these fossil fuels. Renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, hydro and biomass are able to provide 100% of the electricity Europe needs. And even more.

As a European consumer you are not an outsider in this transition. European rules give all electricity consumers the opportunity to choose which electricity they want to use.

By choosing EKOenergy you can really make a difference.

More renewables

We strongly believe that consumer demand for renewable electricity in general has a positive impact on the investment decisions of companies. Nobody would invest in coal plants, if nobody would be willing to buy the electricity originating from coal.

On top of that, for each MWh of EKOenergy sold, minimum 10 eurocents go to the EKOenergy Cimate Fund. That money is used to invest in new renewable electricity installations.

More sustainable production

EKOenergy electricity comes from installations that fulfill the sustainability criteria of the EKOenergy network, a network of European environmental NGOs.

The criteria are different for different types of production. In the case of hydropower, EKOenergy works with a fund model. For each MWh of EKOenergy sold, minimum 10 cents are reinvested in river restoration projects.

Product of your choice

When you buy EKOenergy, you will be properly informed about the origin of your electricity: are you buying wind from Austria? Or biomass from Sweden? This allows you to really choose the electricity you like most. And to make the difference in the way you want to make the difference.
