British Gas and Direct Energy supply power and related services in the UK and US respectively.
Centrica Energy manages power generation and gas production operations to ensure we meet the day-to-day needs of our customers – from platforms in the Morecambe gas fields, to gas fired power stations and wind farms. We also source and extract the energy of the future to supply our UK customers while Direct Energy is expanding its gas and electricity resources for the needs of our North American customers.
Centrica Storage provides an important link between power generation and supply, operating Rough, the largest gas storage facility in the UK, and a partially depleted gas field under the North Sea supported by a gas processing terminal near Hull. Together these facilities represent over 70% of the UK’s total storage capacity, making us able to meet around 10% of peak day demand.
