EDF Energy Partnership

EDF Energy PartnershipSupporting a lower carbon vision for London.

This year saw the start of an exciting three-year partnership between the London Eye and EDF Energy, and with it a new vision for London.

Already part of the Mayor's Green500 scheme, which aims to reduce the capital's C02 emissions, the London Eye is now powered by EDF Energy. As Britain's largest producer of low carbon electricity, the energy company has guaranteed that every unit of electricity consumed by the London Eye will be matched with one generated from a low carbon source.

The EDF Energy London Eye offers a unique view of the capital, but beyond the landmarks, another vision is taking shape: that of a city committed to cleaner, lower carbon living. As the first Sustainability Partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, EDF Energy wants to lead the energy change, and is working with governments, business, transport providers, attractions and institutions to help create a city that's more sustainable.

Electric vehicles could have a real role to play in improving city life. The Mayor's office reports that they could be responsible for up to 40% less carbon emissions than some petrol cars. To support them in making London's air cleaner, EDF Energy is backing the installation of recharging points in key London boroughs.

Powering the EDF Energy London Eye is just the start. Inspired by the Olympic spirit, EDF Energy founded Team Green Britain. With over a million people already members, Team Green Britain is trying to encourage people to work together to reduce how much energy they use at home, at work and at school.
