Better fuels to power your busy life

Life never stands still. To help us keep advancing, we want heat at the push of a button, light at the flick of a switch, and mobility at the turn of a key. But, we also want − and need − that energy to be kinder to the planet. At BP, we’re working to make our energy cleaner and better

Does being at home sometimes feel like you’re a detective in a TV crime drama? “Who left the lights on?” “Who turned the heating up?” “Who left the TV on?”


We’re all questioning how we can use less energy: it’s not just good for our wallets; it’s good for the environment, too.


But, while we try to keep down our energy use at home, the world’s demand is at an all-time high − and getting higher every day. 


Two billion more of us will be sharing this planet in the next few decades.


And they’ll need energy too.


At BP, we’re leaving no stone unturned to provide that extra energy the world needs while finding new ways to produce and deliver it with fewer emissions.


We call it the dual challenge.


And, here are some of the ways that we’re rising to that challenge.


We’re bringing solar and wind energy to homes from the US to India.


We’re boosting supplies of cleaner-burning natural gas.


We’ve also put our know-how into developing fuels that make cars run more efficiently. 


And, if your car runs on electricity, we’re now behind the largest EV charging network in the UK.


More energy with fewer emissions? We see possibilities everywhere to help the world keep advancing.

More possibilities

As we look to the future we’re working to make every part of our business lower carbon
