The 100% renewable energy supplier Pure Planet and bp have launched a new digital service that allows households and drivers of petrol, diesel and electric vehicles (EV) to accurately see the financial cost and the emissions of their personal energy use.
The new service allows Pure Planet Members to link their home energy tariff and their electric vehicle (EV), giving real-time cost per mile data, cost per charge and CO2 emission savings compared with a petrol or diesel car. Non-EV drivers will be able to see potential savings from switching to an electric vehicle.
Users will also benefit from personalised suggestions to reduce their personal carbon footprint, such as using EV, solar, batteries and smart heating, as well as carbon offsetting services, to help reduce costs and offset CO2 emissions from their energy use.
The service follows research from Pure Planet showing a strong desire from UK households to help the UK reach the Government’s Net Zero target. The Pure Planet People and Power report found that three quarters of the UK adults surveyed want to reduce their environmental impact but nearly a quarter don’t know how.
Andrew Ralston, Pure Planet co-founder and CEO, said:
“As a leading renewable energy supplier, we’re excited to be launching a suite of ground-breaking services to enable carbon-lowering for our Members today. This new tech, which we’ve built in partnership with bp, will help people cut their energy bills at home and on the move, reduce the CO2 emissions from their energy use and ultimately help to get to net zero.
“Pure Planet has already saved its members more than one and a half million tonnes of CO2 since its launch. This new service will supercharge the speed at which we reach our next million by helping people manage their energy better by giving them all the information they need to reduce their emissions.”
Felipe Arbelaez, bp’s senior vice president for Zero Carbon Energy, said:
“Equipping home energy users and drivers with the understanding and tools to act on their energy costs and emissions will help us all support the UK’s transition to net zero.
“This new digital service can help members better understand their energy world in a personalised way and take their own first steps towards energy solutions that can help improve their lives and reduce their environmental profile.”
