COP26 delegates were kept warm with a revolutionary renewable fuel, which has been identified as a key alternative clean energy source in the battle against climate change. The fuel, known as HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) is currently being trialled in 200 homes accross the UK, with CPS Fuels supplying the properties selected in East Anglia. We hope to be able to share some early results of this pioneering year-long trial soon.
This timely intervention comes just weeks after we asked some of our customers to take part in some research fill to help us understand the appetite for greener fuels. We were delighted that over 1,000 people took the time to participate and the findings from this research will help us as we continue to plan for a greener future.
57% of those questioned said that they would be interested in an environmentally friendly, biofuel heating oil alternative. The vast majority of those who participated said they would be particularly interested in a kerosene and biofuel blended solution.
It’s clear to us that demand is building for this type of product with three quarters of our poll asking to be kept up to date with new greener alternatives as they become available and over half stating they would be happy to be part of any trial.
We are excited to know that our efforts and focus on a greener future are supported by the customers we deliver to and the local communities we serve.
