BMW i and Good Energy partner to supply green electricity in the UK

BMW has formed a new partnership with Good Energy Ltd to supply 100 per cent green electricity to owners of its electric cars in the UK*. The arrangement allows purchasers of the recently launched BMW i3 and BMW i8 to charge their new vehicle using renewably sourced electricity whilst at home.

Good Energy sources all its electricity from certified renewables across Britain, making it a good choice to power the new range of BMW electric vehicles as well as the entire household. With some of the strictest purchasing policies in the energy industry, and a main electricity tariff that's certified by the independent Green Energy Supply Scheme, Good Energy has rigorous product specifications and sustainability requirements.

The deal will help to displace CO2 emissions from power plants to tailpipe and fulfill BMW's objective of offering a low carbon driving option. It also includes a specially developed home charging unit.

It is anticipated that Good Energy will work with BMW to develop other custom-made green electricity tariffs for electric vehicles and the home.

* the deal excludes Northern Ireland.
