TotalEnergies is committed to the UK and we are proud of the long history we have of investing and operating here. While we will continue to produce and sell quality energy products to our UK customers, our ambitions on climate change will see us steadily transform our business to renewables and power.
Our ambition is to be a world-class player in the energy transition, providing reliable, affordable and clean energy to as many people as possible.
In the UK, we are working with the government to meet its target of net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. We will provide cleaner energy through sustained investment whilst reducing emissions from current assets and maintaining quality jobs as we manage a just transition.
To achieve this, we are concentrating on four areas of strategic focus:
The success of the UK’s offshore gas industry has allowed the country to move away from coal. At the same time, we are working hard to reduce the greenhouse gases from our operations in the North Sea in line with our net-zero commitment.
We were the first major operator in the UK to meet the ISO 50001 quality standard for monitoring our emissions, we continue to make progress reducing flaring and venting, and through our carbon reduction roadmap we have empowered our staff to contribute their ideas for tackling emissions.
To meet the UK’s increasing energy demand but with lower carbon emissions, we are making major investments in electricity from renewable sources. Our Seagreen project (1.1GW) off the east coast of Scotland provides enough green energy to power up to 1.6m UK homes and has the potential to be extended. We are also developing the Erebus floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Wales, Outer Dowsing (1.15GW) off the Lincolnshire coast, and the West of Orkney wind farm (2GW) in the north of Scotland.
TotalEnergies manages and operates the largest electric vehicle charging network across London, which includes more than 2,000 on-street charge points. We will power this charging network with electricity 100% guaranteed from renewable sources. We also provide our gas and power customers with both renewable and carbon offset certificates, supporting their own energy transition.
TotalEnergies is leading the way in developing biofuels and deploying them across the world. In the UK we are also increasing the energy efficiency of our lubricants and solvents and introducing new product ranges that use renewable biopolymers.
We are working with partners across industry to develop new technologies that will help with the energy transition. Carbon capture is an exciting opportunity with great potential in the UK.
Our values are fundamental to who we are and what we do. They guide our business as we work towards achieving our ambition to be a world-class player in the energy transition.
Our values are inherent in our people and our projects and set out what our partners and customers can expect of us.
