Swedish Vattenfall will offer retail customers climate-smart energy with the goal of helping reduce dependency on fossil fuels starting from Monday, Oct. 1, the company announced Monday.

The company will launch climate smart solutions including electricity and gas supply services at competitive prices.


According to the announcement, since 2000 the firm has operated in France and supplies more than 4,000 business customers with portfolio solutions and renewable energy.


Vattenfall already offers renewable energy with a Guarantee of Origin (GoO) to French business customers.


A GoO is an electronic document which has the sole function of providing proof to a final customer that a given share or quantity of energy was produced from renewable sources.


Earlier this year, the company also announced its participation in a tender for offshore wind outside Dunkirk.


Magnus Hall, Vattenfall’s president and CEO, declared France an interesting market and said that Vattenfall’s ambitions in the country are in line with the company's smart, digitalized and fossil-free strategy.


Daily (23.05.2019): European carbon prices spiked by nearly 4% on Wednesday, on looming tight supply and higher gas prices

Crude oil prices dropped on Wednesday, after data showed that U.S. crude inventories surged unexpectedly amplifying concerns over a weaker oil demand raised by the lengthy U.S.-China tariff dispute. WTI futures closed 2.7% lower at 61.42 USD/bbl, in tandem with falling equities. On the other side, rising tensions between Washington and Iran coupled with OPEC’s intentions to continue output cuts helped limit the fall in prices. As a result, Brent crude price dropped by 1.7% to 70.99 USD/bbl.
