Drax Energy Solutions has signed an agreement with Allied Glass to provide 66 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity annually from a river hydroelectric scheme in Scotland.

With a bespoke Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA), 100% of the electricity used by Allied Glass is certified with Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) from the Drax Group Galloway Hydro Scheme.

This allows Allied Glass to match its energy use with the renewable electricity generated to support its carbon reduction goals.

Alan Henderson, CEO at Allied Glass, said We chose to source our renewable power from Drax’s Galloway Hydro Scheme, as knowing exactly where our electricity comes from helps us continue towards our 2025 sustainability targets.

“We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that the materials and resources we use are sustainable. Renewable electricity is very much part of that process.”
